“That is a letter for O. N. Hudson,” Anderson said, as she pointed to a letter to someone else. “That’s from a soldier in his unit, William V. Davison. It’s kind of interesting to see what they’re saying.”
Anderson, an archivist at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, spent the past year working with Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy, to digitize the letters and diaries of people who served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. The paper documents, which are mostly letters and reports written by or to soldiers during the war, have been preserved in the paper but were usually kept in boxes with a few pages.
What Anderson has discovered is that the papers, which had been kept safely in storage away from light and moisture, are in remarkably good shape. The letters have been kept in boxes and could possibly be opened and read — a source of great interest for the people in the society, who would like to know more about their history and those who were once their neighbors.
“Most of them have never seen them before,” Anderson said, as she turned pages with a laser pointer to show the letters.
The letters, which were sent to newspapers across the country, are mostly newspapers and were published after the war. They were collected from paper books that were donated in the 1880s by Civil War veterans.
The Historical Society of Pennsylvania has been compiling the letters into a database in order to make them available to researchers. In addition to the letters, the society is also digitizing documents that were used by Confederate soldiers. The documents include official orders from the Confederate government, tickets to Confederate social events and Confederate currency that was used during the Civil War.
The Virginia division of the society plans to publish a book with the letters and a timeline of key events in the Confederate cause.
When Davis, who was president of the Confederacy, came to the Historical Society of Pennsylvania in 2011 for a tour of the Philadelphia museums, he ordered that the letters be preserved and digitized.
