James City County Looking For Civil War Documents

imageThe Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission and the Library of Virginia are partnering in the Civil War 150 Legacy Project to identify and locate original  materials in Virginia that are related to the Civil War and emancipation.

The Library of Virginia is sending teams of archivists to scan privately-held manuscript material for inclusion on both the Library of Virginia and the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission websites.

On Oct. 22, archivists from the Library of Virginia will be at the James City County Library, 7770 Croaker Rd., to scan any:

• Letters
• Military passes/discharge papers
• Diaries
• Photographs
• Hand-drawn maps
• Pension materials
• Hand-drawn sketches
• Claims for damages by the Confederate Army or Federal Army

Of particular interest to the project are global and pacifist perspectives and the viewpoints of individual African Americans and women.

Items must be owned by the individual presenting the materials for scanning. Materials that are photocopied or subject to United States copyright law may not be submitted.

Scanning will be done by appointment only from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Contact Jason Purse at 757-253-6689 or by email atjpurse@james-city.va.us to set up an appointment.

The Civil War 150 Legacy Project is offered in partnership with the Williamsburg Regional Library, the James City County Historical Commission, the Historic Triangle Collaborative, the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission and the Library of Virginia.
