Civil War Washington is a digital resource that allows users to visualize the complex changes in the city of Washington, DC between 1860 and 1865 through a collection of datasets, statistics, images, texts, and narrative accounts.

This blog, Dispatches from Civil War Washington, is an outgrowth of the website.  We intend this blog to be a way for the participants to convey the ongoing issues, findings, and research with the digital project.  As the project continues to develop, new research issues, technical complications and decisions on digital matters need to be resolved.  This blog will allow others to learn from our challenges.  We appreciate comments from readers on individual posts and on the blog as a whole, but comments will be moderated by the participants in the project.

The site is directed by Susan C. Lawrence, Kenneth M. Price, and Kenneth J. Winkle and is freely distributed by the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. The project is managed by Elizabeth Lorang.

This blog is managed collectively by participants in the project.

Funding and support are provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this website do not necessarily reflect those of the NEH.
