The latest digital collection published by the M ississippi State University Libraries is now online. Part of the ASERL project "Civil War in the American South," this collection comprises 150 documents published between 1850 and 1865, primarily documenting Mississippi and Mississippians from many localities within the state, and containing subject matter that contributes to a better understanding of the non-military aspects of the Civil War. The site can be viewed at: http://american-south.org/.
In recognition of the sesquicentennial of the start of the American Civil War, Civil War and the American South provides a central portal to access digital collections from the Civil War Era (1850-1865) held by members of the ASERL. This site currently links to more than 8804 items from 23 libraries. The shared collection continues to grow, providing ready access to a world-class collection of primary source materials from the American Civil War era.
Our own interface to the collection, Intellectual Underpinnings of the American Civil War, can be found here: http://digital.library.msstate.edu/collections/.
