Missouri Libraries and Civil War Digitization Projects

by Brett Schulte on February 18, 2010 · 0 comments

A recent blog entry at the MoGSA Messenger, the Official Weblog of the Missouri State Genealogical Association discusses Civil War digitization projects at the Kansas City Public Library and the Springfield-Greene County Library District.  While the Kansas City area project is just getting started, the Springfield area project has a flourishing website called Community & Conflict: The Impact of the Civil War in the Ozarks.  I highly recommend spending some time on this site, which features quite a variety of primary sources.  Digitization of Civil War materials is rapidly expanding, making research possible for more and more people.  I’m excited about the possibilities.
