Virginia State Library Digitizes More Than 33,000 Civil War Personal Papers

Between 2010 and 2015 the Virginia State Library sent two archivists around the state to digitize Civil War documents from people's personal collections. More than 33,000 pages were scanned and are now available for free online as part of the James I. Robertson Jr. Civil War Sesquicentennial Legacy Collection.

The project was done in partnership with the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission and Virginia's local Sesquicentennial committees.

See you soon at Mt. Clemens Public Library!
