The Civil War Collection — NEW DATABASE

Civil WarThe Civil War Collection contains a broad spectrum of in-depth articles discuss trade with foreign countries, and how their governments viewed the United States in light of the Civil War. There is information on specific industries of the time, such as the oyster trade in New York. Slavery is an important topic, and countless editorials discuss pre- and post-war attitudes from both sides, as well as troop movements during the war. The library has just purchased additional components of this database, including Soldiers’, Generals’, and Iowa’s Perspectives; Northeast Regimental Histories, and Abraham Lincoln Library Abolitionist Books.
