The American Civil War Letters & Diaries contains 849 authors and
approximately 52,000 pages of
letters, diaries and memoirs. When complete, the collection will include more than 100,000 pages of primary
materials. Each source has been
carefully chosen using leading bibliographies.
The product includes some previously unpublished manuscripts - for example, the letters of Amos Wood and his wife.
The collection also includes biographies, an extensive
bibliography of the sources in the database, and material licensed from The
Civil War Day-by-Day by E.B. Long.
CWLD uses PhiloLogic software, developed at the University of Chicago, to enable in-depth browsing and searching of both the bibliographic and the full-text elements within the database.
