U.S. Civil War Letters Available Online

A collection of U. S. Civil War letters from the Archives are now available online 24/7 for learning, teaching, and research through Ball State’s Digital Media Repository, a project of the University Libraries. The letters form part of the U. S. Civil War Resources for East Central Indiana collection. Funded by a Library Technology Services Act (LSTA) grant, the collection is the result of a partnership between the University Libraries, Henry County Historical Society, Muncie Public Library, and the Dan Quayle Center and U. S. Vice Presidential Museum. Researchers can view digital images and read transcriptions of the original documents. More Civil War materials will be added to the collections in the near future.

For information, contact John Straw, Director, Archives & Special Collections Research Center, at JStraw@bsu.edu or (765) 285-5078.
