The Civil War Connections Blog

Library of Congress has selected “Civil War Connections” as part of their American Civil War Sesquicentennial Web Archive!

We just received word yesterday that the United States Library of Congress has selected this website for inclusion in their historic collection of Internet materials related to the American Civil War Sesquicentennial!

Their Web Archiving Team tells us that “Web Archives are important because they contribute to the historical record, capturing information that could otherwise be lost. With the growing role of the Web as an influential medium, records of historic events could be considered incomplete without materials that were “born digital” and never printed on paper.” If you would like to know more information about these Web Archive collections, please visit their website.

We are thrilled to join our friends at the Civil War Navy Sesquicentennial site in this important endeavor!
