HISTORY(R) DIGITAL KICKS OFF CIVIL WAR WEEK

DAILY OFFERINGS COMMEMORATE THE ANNIVERSARIES OF GETTYSBURG AND VICKSBURG STARTING SUNDAY, JUNE 30

New York, NY, June 27, 2013 - HISTORY(R) DIGITAL announces the kick-off of Civil War Week, - a week-long campaign commemorating the anniversary of two of America's bloodiest battles, Gettysburg and Vicksburg, with themed content and daily offerings across several platforms including History in the Headlines, History Lists, Hungry History and the ever popular Civil War Today app.

In addition, HISTORY.com will host a live streaming event from Gettysburg in honor of the 150th anniversary of that epic battle. The commemoration, organized with the Gettysburg Foundation and the National Park Service will stream live, free of charge, starting at 8/7c.

HISTORY will also be reigniting its enormously successful Give 150 campaign during Civil War week. Give 150 is a multi-year initiative to help preserve Civil War sites and stories by mobilizing the public to make donations to two non-profit organizations, the National Park Foundation and the Civil War Trust.

HISTORY's Civil War content includes a broad collection of topical and biographical articles, exclusive short-form video series featuring top Civil War historians as well as extensive Gettysburg and Civil War-related video. Fans can also watch the Emmy(R) Award-winning docudrama "Gettysburg," produced by filmmakers Tony and Ridley Scott and the three-part special "Unknown Civil War: Battle of Gettysburg."

HISTORY's Civil War Week will showcase the following:

Civil War Today app

For a limited time, HISTORY will be offering the popular Civil War Today app for just $.99. Available for iPad, the app lets users explore America's bloodiest conflict through documents, photographs, diary entries and maps updated daily, unveiling the events of the war in real time.

Civil War 150 Interactive

Visitors can also check out HISTORY's award-winning Civil War 150 interactive, which includes highlights on the most important people, places, events and technologies of the war, and was selected by the Library of Congress for inclusion in its Civil War Sesquicentennial permanent collection.

Give 150

In commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War, HISTORY invites the public to help preserve and protect Civil War sites and stories through the Give 150(TM) national campaign. Give 150(TM) donations go directly to the Civil War Trust and the National Park Foundation, both non-profit 501 (c) 3 organizations, to help protect Civil War sites and lands, and support their interpretation. Launched in 2011, Give 150 has already raised nearly $200,000.
