Gateway to Digitized Sources in Civil War Era History

This project facilitates easier access to the increasing quantity of digitized sources for anyone undertaking a Civil War Era research project. Using the “delicious” social bookmarking platform, Center graduate assistants Kristin Carlson and Lucas Kelley have compiled a selection of the leading databases. You can browse the list or you can use the “tags” feature to quickly identify the most relevant databases.
