UI Library Special Collections

How do we know what really occured during the Civil War? Do we simply believe everything we read on the internet or from our teachers? The University of Iowa’s Library Special Collections has a section dedicated to the Civil War where there is evidence dating back to this era. This series is located on the third floor of the Main Library or there is also a website. The link below allows you to transcribe diaries and letters from soldiers and soldier’s families.
