The first shot of the Civil War was fired 1,000 miles from Oakland County's borders. Yet this area is brimming with Civil War tales, facts and artifacts -- now available to the public through a new digital map, Oakland County in the Civil War. By marrying technology and local history and information, the
County's developing collection of interactive, digitized maps seeks to
present 21st century residents with new ways to explore the 872
square miles of Oakland County.
