Civil War Book of Days Website Launched

Weekly E-mails Marking What Happened Each Week in the Civil War

The Vermont Humanities Council is pleased to announce that it has just finished building a searchable website that includes all 191 entries of the Civil War Book of Days. VHC began the weekly e-newsletter to honor the sesquicentennial of the Civil War .These weekly e-mails mark what happened each week 150 years earlier during the Civil War.
 
The very first entry, published on October 15, 2010, featured Abraham Lincoln as he was running for office and advice from a charming girl named Grace Bedell.

Since then VHC has published nearly 200 entries based on personal letters, public speeches, and unique perspectives of battle.


Visit civilwarbookofdays.org for the complete searchable archive of nearly 200 entries of the Civil War Book of Days. The site is updated weekly. And sign up for the weekly e-mail.

To honor the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the Vermont Humanities Council launched the Civil War Book of Days in October 2010.

VHC invites you to submit information for the Civil War Book of Days.

Submit texts linked to specific dates — a poignant or inspiring letter, an excerpt from a secondary source, or 100-500 words of original descriptive prose.
