The American Civil War aka The War Between the States, is the event that defined the United States. Before the Civil War, our nation was referred to as was "…the united States are…". The Civil War it bcame "…the United States is…". The Civil War has spawned  a mountain of  literature. This collection contains prime sources - official government reports from both sides as well as historical and first person accounts written during and shortly after the Civil War. This comprehensive multi-volume series on the American Civil War is a collection of prime sources for scholar's and researchers. These pdf files are facsimile copies allowing for sources to be properly referenced and footnoted. In the case of documents from university archives, ther original protective envelope with catalog information, barcode, etc., are included as an aid to referencing these materials in footnotes and ednotes. 

Most of the documents in this 6 disk boxed scholar's library here come from the Duke University Collection of Confederate Imprints. Duke University holds one of the world’s largest collections of items printed in the Confederate States of America between secession from the Union and the surrender of the Confederate military forces, December 1860-April 1865. Confederate imprints are notable for their fragility and ephemerality, due to the scarcity of high-quality paper and a lack of large publishing and printing houses in the South, as well as for the view their contents give of military and civilian life in the Confederacy. This collection contains examples of the wide variety of Confederate imprints, from broadsides and printed forms to military manuals and novels.
It is an intimate look at the minutae of the American Confederacy and a valuable aid to scholars or anyone who is interested in the Confederate States of America. There are to many individual documents to list them all, so the contents shown below show subfolders and how many files they contain.
