LincolnArchives Digital Project: Free Access September 1-14, 2011

Another Web site with digitized Civil War-era information has come online.  The LincolnArchives Digital Project is granting a free two-week trial to view the Civil War, Lincoln administration, and Confederate records at http://www.lincolnarchives.us/.  Use code 8AFC42CCC2 to take advantage of the free offer.  After the free access period the site will revert to subscription-only access.

The site gives three ways to find information:  a regular search feature, searching by NARA Record Group descriptions, and a site map with subject headers.  There are records related to prisoners of war, the slave trade, court martials, Lincoln's assassination, and more.  Photographs, political cartoons, and newspapers are also available.
