The Civil War Writings of Walt Whitman

This project involves the the creation of a comprehensive edition of the Civil War writings of Walt Whitman, an incomparable record of a major American author's experience of the War. It entails electronically preparing hundreds of wartime documents, including personal correspondence and letters Whitman wrote on behalf of soldiers. This project will make these documents available and allow them to serve as a model for future electronic scholarly editions.
