A long-neglected component in American Civil War research will receive new emphasis and scholarly attention thanks to a grant to the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech. The Atlanta-based Watson-Brown Foundation has awarded $209,000 to the Center to develop a comprehensive on-line index of Civil War newspapers which will provide historians, scholars, students, and other interested parties with ready access to an important, but largely untapped, reservoir of primary source material.
