As we are now deeply into the sesquicentennial of the United States’ internal conflict most commonly referred to as the Civil War, I should mention that there is an interesting digitization project called Community and Conflict: The Impact of the Civil War in the Ozarks. We have thus far contributed two documents to it: an Act to define the status of Freedmen and their descendants, ca. 1881 and the Alfred Dexter Morgan diaries, 1864-1866.
The site is definitely worth visiting. Established by the Springfield-Greene County Library District and other organizations to bring together Civil War era documents, it examines the effect the war had on people in the Ozarks.
We are honored to be a part of this project.
