Title: Civil War Letters: Resurrecting Lost Voices — DIY Digital Archiving

Presenter: Stan Prager                                    Room 302

Description: A chance encounter with the previously unpublished Civil War letters of a Massachusetts soldier killed at the battle of Cold Harbor led to a project that digitized & transcribed this correspondence, and the creation of a website to share it for public access.  This presentation discusses this kind of Do-it-Yourself (DIY) digital archiving that can be achieved on a shoestring budget with today’s technology.
