Civil War 150 Legacy Project:
Document Digitization and Access

The Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission and the Library of Virginia are partnering to identify and locate original manuscript material concerning the Civil War. These materials may include letters, photographs, diaries, maps and other Civil War-era materials. The Library of Virginia is sending teams of archivists to scan privately-held manuscript material for inclusion on both the Library of Virginia and the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission websites. The teams are coordinating visits with local sesquicentennial committees to ensure coverage of the whole of Virginia.

Locate items within your family collections that document the Civil War and the Civil-War era. Items suitable for the Civil War 150 Legacy Project include:

Letters Military passes / discharge papers
Diaries Photographs
Hand-drawn maps Pension materials
Hand-drawn sketches Other documentary materials not listed
Claims for damages by the Confederate Army or Federal Army

Items must be owned by the individual presenting the materials for digitization. Materials that are photocopied and/or subject to United States copyright law may not be submitted for digitization.
