PIVA awards won by North South Trader's Civil War:
Welcome to the award-winning North South Trader's Civil War magazine, the first and finest periodical dedicated to collectors, relic hunters, historians, and researchers of the War Between the States. Since 1973 we have celebrated the Civil War artifact as a contextual, tangible document of history. We have published well over 1,000 articles focusing on every type of relic that exists, from minie balls to uniforms to gunboats. The artifact is our niche, and whether brought home as a war trophy by a veteran, preserved by descendants, stored in a museum, housed at a historical society, or excavated from the soil, all have important places within our pages.
We have been active in historic preservation since our first issue, and we are proud of the fact that we were in the vanguard of publicizing the crucial fight against rampant development of the primary relic: the battlefield. Long before ARPA ever existed, we were the first to publish the ethics and etiquette of Civil War relic hunting, including but not limited to obtaining permission for private property and never encroaching on protected lands.
Please join us as we continue to investigate Civil War history through the untold stories of its artifacts.
Our triennial Civil War Price Guide
