Civil War Trading Cards For Kids

The anniversaries of the Battle of Gettysburg and the start of the Civil War are being marked with the use of kids trading cards.

The Gettysburg National Military Park is making the trading cards available to kids, and only kids, as a reward for visiting historical Civil War battle sites that the National Park Service Maintains. Some other parks with connections to the Civil War will also have the cards.

The cards are full of Civil war history. They tell different stories that aren't only about generals, leaders, and service members, but also some historical places that the kids can still see today.

It has been 148 years since the Battle Of Gettysburg and 150 years since the start of the Civil war.
