About the site:

Chronicles of the American Civil War consists primarily of public domain material from the time of the civil war through the end of the nineteenth century. Other material applicable to the war from other periods may be included.

The primary focus of my interest is civil war material related to the impact of the war on the public and individuals in the service.

Public Domain - Material is "harvested" from public domain sources, many of them on-line.  On-line sources are generally government or collegiate sites.
