The Valley of the Shadow Project

follows two communities, one Northern and one Southern, through their experiences in the American Civil War. This hypermedia archive contains thousands of sources from before, during and after the Civil War in Virginia and Pennsylvania including newspapers, letters, diaries, photographs, maps, church records, population census and military records. Students can write their own histories, reconstructing the lives of those who lived during the period. (University of Virginia, National Endowment for the Humanities)
