"Civil War Treasures from the New-York Historical Society" is the latest
addition to the Library's American Memory Web site at
<http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/ndlpcoop/nhihtml/>. The
online presentation contains materials drawn from 12 collections housed
at the New-York Historical Society. The "Civil War Treasures" online
collection is a cooperative project of the Library of Congress and the
New-York Historical Society.

Founded in 1804, the New-York Historical Society houses one of the
oldest research libraries and museums in the United States. Collections
documenting the Civil War are a particular strength of the society.

Pictorial items in the digitized Civil War collection include 731
stereographs, more than 70 photographs from an album, 178 sketches from
three different collections, 304 posters, 29 etchings of caricatures and
nearly 500 envelopes with printed or embossed decoration related to
Civil War events and personalities. Items from manuscript collections
include the first and only issue of The Prison Times handwritten by
Confederate prisoners held at Fort Delaware; 32 letters by Sarah Blunt,
a nurse in military hospitals at Point Lookout, Maryland, and Harper's Ferry,
West Virginia; and three letters by Walt Whitman. The letters complement
the Library's Walt Whitman "Poet at Work" online collection.

The digitization of "Civil War Treasures from the New-York Historical
Society" was made possible through the generous support of the Andrew W.
Mellon Foundation.
