NPS Park Histories online

The National Park Service's History website has a wonderful sub-section (Park Histories) full of official reports of various types, many of interest to the Civil War reader and freely downloadable in .pdf format. It's definitely a bookmark worthy site.

I browsed through Jerome A. Greene's mammoth The Defense of New Orleans, 1718-1900: Special History Study (1982) [it's about a 22 MB download at 600+ pages], and found a ton of Civil War-related maps, drawings, and other material (thanks, Art!).
