This is a collection of letters written by or to soldiers from Central New York during the American Civil War. Most of the soldiers were members of the 97th, 117th, and 123rd NYS Infantry Regiments, but many other regiments are mentioned in the letters.
This collection includes transcriptions of 211 hand-written letters. Digial images of each pages are accessed through links within the transcriptions.
Most of these documents are letters between soldiers and their families, but there are also some official government documents such as enlistment forms, commissioning papers, and death notices.
These letters were digitized by Backstage Library Works of Orem, Utah at 600 dpi, saved as uncompressed TIFF. They delivered to Hamilton College the TIFF images and JPEG derivatives.
Transcriptions of the letters were made by Backstage Library Works who also encoded them as TEI P5 files.
Digitization of this collection was made possible by grants from the New York State Regional Bibliographic Databases and Interlibrary Resources Sharing Program through CLRC (Central New York Library Resources Council).
