Center for the Study of the Civil War Era at Kennesaw State University


Collection Information

The Center for the Study of the Civil War Era offers assistance with a variety of records and resources that are meant to help you explore the lives and times of persons who experienced some of the most turbulent and significant periods in United States history. Although focusing most closely on matters relating to citizens and soldiers, Union and Confederate, during the American Civil War, the Center programming also offers examinations of the Antebellum North and South, slavery and secession, Reconstruction and reconciliation, the emergence of a "New South," and the on-going pursuit of civil rights for all Americans. Much of what the nation is today can only be understood through the ways in which this important period informs us, reflects and shapes our culture and values, and calls upon us to embrace our collective history and heritage.

The types of collections available to students and patrons are located in the "Scope of Collection."
