Web Site of the Week: Abraham Lincoln, Slavery, and the Civil War: A Collection of Digitized Books
The Illinois Harvest Digital Collection presents a wide variety of cultural and historical materials related to the state of Illinois. The project began in 2006 and has resulted in many thousands of works being added to its rolls. This rather compelling corner of the collection presents over 1,400 publications related to Abraham Lincoln, with a discrete focus on biographies of the man, slavery, and the American Civil War. One particularly noteworthy title is the 1945 work, “Intimate Memories of Lincoln.” This piece, a compilation of anecdotes from people who knew Lincoln well, is quite an intriguing read. Visitors, particularly those who love American history and related subjects, will find they can easily wander around this collection for hours. [KMG]
