The North Carolina Digital Collections website has a free Civil War collection. “The Civil War digital collection is a joint project of the State Archives and State Library of North Carolina. This digital collection was created as part of the 2011-2015 Department of Natural and Cultural Resources commemoration of the American Civil War Sesquicentennial. The themes of the commemoration were Freedom, Sacrifice, and Memory, and were intended to encompass a wide range of topics and points of view. The digital collections includes letters, diaries, newspaper articles, reminiscences, troop histories, state agency records, maps, rosters, books, and other materials related to North Carolina’s Civil War history. Some items were selected to support the Civil War 150 blog maintained by the staff of the State Archives. While many materials have been made available through this digital collection, the online materials are still a small sample of what is available for research from the contributing institutions.”

“The North Carolina Digital Collections contain over 90,000 historic and recent photographs, state government publications, manuscripts, and other resources on topics related to North Carolina. The Collections are free and full-text searchable, and bring together content from the State Archives of North Carolina and the State Library of North Carolina.”
