HST 4650: U.S. Civil War -- Online Civil War/Reconstruction primary source documents on the free web

These are just starting places--there are many great online collections of Civil War and Reconstruction documents.

To find more, Google digital [or some version of this word] collections [your topic keywords] site:.edu.

You can also try site:.org (this would capture those by historical societies, for example) but remember that .org sites may be of poor quality--be sure to check who is sponsoring the website and what they are all about!  

Site:.gov will include U.S. government sites, including our national archives, Smithsonian institutions, and government departments.

Online primary source collections through WSU subscription

All the resources below are available only in the Dunbar Library or off-campus by authenticating with your campus login (w number) and password.

Unlike the websites in the box above, these are only for Wright State students--we pay lots of money for subscriptions to these.
