On This Day in Civil War History

As part of the campus sesquicentennial commemoration of the Civil War, the George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives presented a blog as a daily reminder of what occurred 150 years ago.  The posts derive from among the historical resources in Special Collections:  a passage from a letter to a soldier; a soldier’s diary entry; a note of condolence; a daily surgeon’s morning report; an account of activities on the home front.

The year-long project has concluded but you can still view all of the posts.
