The National Digital Library and the Manuscript Division are
proud to announce additions to one of the American Memory
collections currently online: Words and Deeds in American History.
This collection was created to celebrate the centennial of the Library’s
Manuscript Division and its continued work protecting and providing
access to the primary resource material that documents the people and
organizations that shaped our country.

The first addition to the Words and Deeds collection is a Civil War
Photograph Album that is part of the James Wadsworth Family Papers.
This album of two hundred, autographed cartes de visite (miniature
portraits used as calling cards) is believed to have been compiled by
John Hay, a personal secretary to Abraham Lincoln and later a noted
political figure in his own right. Included in this leather-bound album
are images of military officers, politicians, and cultural figures. People
of note include Abraham Lincoln, Montgomery Blair, Oliver Wendell
Holmes, Edwin Booth, Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Salmon P.
Chase. The work of twenty photographers or photographic firms is
represented, including such notables as Mathew B. Brady, Alexander
Gardner, the Whitehurst Gallery of Washington, D.C., and Black and
Case Photographic Studios. Patrons can flip through each page of the
album or view each image individually. They can also select images to
view from two lists: a list of individuals appearing in the album and a list
of photographers represented.

The second addition to the collection is a draft of Elizabeth Cady
Stanton’s The Woman’s Bible. Stanton, who is best known as a
suffragist, participated in a number of reform initiatives with her focus
on insuring women’s rights in all areas not just in the polling place.
One of her most controversial stands was on the Church’s role in
limiting women’s progress. In the late 1880s, Stanton began a through
study of the Bible. Her work, along with the contributions made by a
committee of academic and church women brought together for this
project, led to the creation of volume one of The Woman’s Bible.
Focusing on only those passages that mentioned women or
erroneously omitted women, The Woman’s Bible reproduces the
original text followed by a reinterpretation or commentary. The 151
pages of material made available online as part of Words and Deeds
contains Stanton’s handwritten text for the books of Genesis, Exodus,
and Numbers published in the first volume of her Bible and the book
of Matthew published in volume two.
