1912Re: Suggestions for Antietam historian? part II
- Apr 14, 2005Hi Darin,
I think you're on the right track and I'd enciourage you in this
There's lots of first-had source material out there. Quite a bit is
online (try Google). I've had people send me transcribed letters and
diaries for AotW (see http://aotw.org/exhibit.php?exhibit_id=365 for
example). There have been numerous collections of first hand accounts
in print as well.
You could also put out appeals for material to the big Civil War lists
and geneology groups on the internet - probably lots of folks out
there who could help.
Best to you on your project, I really enjoy your photos. "Sunken
Road, looking east" is a cover shot, if ever I've seen one. No
question about where that was taken! A timeless image.
