AMERICAN HERITAGE PUBLISHING has just announced the launch of www.HeritageSites.us , a new website offering users information on thousands of historic sites across the United States. Visitors can sift through nearly 3,000 places and historical societies, searching by theme or type of site, as well as by location.

“When we started this more than a year ago, we were surprised to find that no other site on the Internet has all the history museums, battlefields, and parks that history buffs are interested in,” says Edwin S. Grosvenor, President of American Heritage Publishing. “It's a lot of fun to look up Civil War sites, ship museums, or the houses of famous literary figures in your area or in a place where you're traveling to.”

By year-end, the site will also offer maps and instant directions for driving.
