Guests at Boston hotels can find out more about how it affected Massachusetts if they venture a little way out of the city to nearby Cambridge and its beautiful landscaped cemetery.
Discover Mount Auburn: The Civil War is a walking tour that aims to fascinate participants with information about how some of the people buried there were involved in the battles.
There is a chance to see the poignant monuments to those who made the ultimate sacrifice on the front lines, as well as the ways in which the war left its mark on the surrounding landscape.
It will take place on the afternoon of May 18th and costs just $10, so could be the perfect way to bring American history to life.
Although the event is in Cambridge, it is still easy to get to for guests at the Millennium Bostonian Hotel Boston. Either drive down the I-90 West for 15 minutes, or hop on the red line of the subway towards Alewife.
