Welcome to Today in the Civil War: Dispatches from the Rosenbach Collection, part of the Rosenbach Museum & Library’s celebration of the Civil War 150. Beginning November 6, 2010, the 150th anniversary of the election of Abraham Lincoln, we will be posting Civil War-era documents, including manuscripts, newspapers, photos, and printed books from the Rosenbach collection 150 years after they were originally created. The site will run through April 2015.

Check back November 6 to follow the unfolding conflict through the words of the people who lived it.
