The Civil War Trails is a multi-state program that identifies, interprets and creates driving tours of Civil War sites. The program interprets more than 1,100 Civil War sites throughout West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and Tennessee. In West Virginia, there are about 150 sites in development that will feature Civil War Trails program interpretive panels. The West Virginia Civil War Trails map is available at civilwarwv.com or by calling 1-800-CALL-WVA.

The program is administered by a nonprofit corporation and supported by local communities, state tourism offices and state departments of transportation. In 2001, the National Trust for Historic Preservation identified the Civil War Trails program as one of the most successful and sustainable heritage tourism programs in the nation. Statewide events are planned throughout the year to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
