Citizens are encouraged to bring original family materials to Historic Sandusky to be scanned and included in the project.

To make an appointment at Historic Sandusky, call (434) 832-0162 or email @ email@example.com . Appointments are encouraged : a limited number of walk-ins will be accommodated, as scheduling allows.
The Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission and the Library of Virginia have partnered to create a statewide online collection of original Civil War manuscripts that still remain in private hands, including letters, diaries and other collections. The Civil War 150 Legacy Project: Document Digitization and Access focuses on manuscript materials created during the period 1859-1867 that reflect social, political, military, business and religious life in Virginia during the period of the Civil War and the early period of Reconstruction.
