      I am forwarding this if you have not sampled the wonderful Making of America
      series, please do so. The actual digitalizing is being done by both Cornell
      and Michigan (as an Ohio State graduate, that pains me to say!) and there
      are cross links to both.

      Halleck is there, as is Mahan -- both Dennis Hart and his son Alfred.
      Magazines in great abundance -- check the cover of the February 1862
      Atlantic Monthly: the normal material was replaced for a new song, "The
      Battle Hymn of the Republic." And the Century Magazine is also
      present --want to read Battles and Leaders in their entirety? Only a
      fraction of the material made it into the four volumes.

      Take care,

      Bob

      Making of America Collection Adds 7,000 Volumes

      The University of Michigan University Library is pleased to announce the
      addition of over 7,000 volumes to its Making of America collection. This
      expansion brings the total volumes available online to 8,500 or
      approximately 2.89 million pages of text and 1.15 billion words. The
      addition of these materials to Making of America was made possible in part
      through the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and an
      equipment grant from Sun Microsystems.

      Making of America (MoA) - a publicly-accessible online resource focusing on
      19th century American publications - now contains over 3% of all American
      imprint monographs published in the 19th century (based on preliminary
      statistics provided by the Library of Congress). The majority of these
      materials were published between 1850 and 1876 and focus on topics ranging
      from the life and death of Abraham Lincoln to the latest 19th century
      household sciences to reflections on travel to the Western United States.
      The collection is particularly strong in the subject areas of education,
      psychology, American history, sociology, religion, and science and
      technology. MoA offers users the opportunity to view faithful replicas of
      the original source materials, perform full text searches over the entire
      collection, search within individual texts, and save searches and develop
      bibliographies using the MoA "book bag."

      The Making of America is available freely over the Internet and may be found
      at: http://moa.umdl.umich.edu/. For additional information about MoA,
