Secession Era Editorials Project
Main Project Page
You may want to start with our
hints and suggestions for using the collection.
Users unfamiliar with the partisan newspaper press in the late antebellum
period may want to read a
short introduction to the partisan press which
explains the circumstances under which these documents were first created.
More advanced users may wish to look at our brief discussion of
concepts of political vocabulary and political rhetoric.
We also have background information
about the project,
document selection criteria,
transcription methods, a list of the
newspapers currently included and the
collection's TEI/XML source file.
