American Civil War Home Page
http://sunsite.utk.edu/civil-war/

A+ CONTENT:
This is a simple, one page site that has a VERY comprehensive set of links to Civil War Resources on the internet.

B+ AESTHETICS:
This site opens with a graphic of Lincoln, the rest is bold text which is easy to read and follow.

A ORGANIZATION:
For a one page site, it is well organized with 12 subject areas which link to spots later in the page.

REVIEW:
Here is a site that has 200+ links relating to the Civil War, it's a history teacher's dream come true. Some of the 12 categories include: General Resources (including timelines), graphic images, letters, accounts, diaries, specific battles, Civil War Reenactors and Round Tables, and much more. What more can I say? It's one page, it's comprehensive, and an invaluable tool for history educators.
