I am writing to seek your assistance with our project, the Civil War
Governors of Kentucky, Digital Documentary Edition (CWG-K), now in its
fourth year. This project is endorsed by the National Historical
Publications and Records Commission (the granting arm of the National
Archives and Records Administration), and is currently funded by the
National Endowment for the Humanities. This long-term (approximately
thirteen-year) documentary-editing project is dedicated to locating,
imaging, transcribing, annotating, and publishing documents associated with
all five Kentucky Civil War governors, including the three Union governors,
Beriah Magoffin (1859-62), James F. Robinson (1862-63), and Thomas E.
Bramlette (1863-67), and the two provisional Confederate governors, George
W. Johnson (1861-62) and Richard Hawes (1862-65). The edition will be
comprised of an estimated 35,000 documents spanning the period from November
1860, coinciding with the election of Abraham Lincoln, to the end of 1865,
which marked congressional passage of the Thirteenth Amendment. Published
online and freely accessible, CWG-K will open new research possibilities for
scholars worldwide and foster new understandings of this tumultuous era for
teachers, students, and the general public.
We currently are conducting a national search for documents. We are looking
for manuscripts or printed materials written by a Kentucky Civil War
governor; documents addressed to a governor; documents endorsed by a
governor; documents written by a secretary or assistant but signed by a
governor; documents reporting a governor's words (e.g., speeches printed in
newspapers). If you are confident that you have relevant documents, we would
like to visit your institution to do research and to obtain high-resolution
color digital images of any in-scope documents that we find. We are trying
to maintain as much consistency as possible among images from dozens of
repositories by using our own scanners. In our records, we would carefully
identify your institution as the owner of the original documents and provide
this information in any citations. We would also make available to you
copies of any digital images we capture of documents from your institution's
Finally, if by chance you know of other repositories or collections that may
have the kind of materials we are seeking, or know of any person(s) who may
have such knowledge, we would greatly appreciate any information and
contacts you could provide to further our efforts.
We understand that this could be a lengthy process and greatly appreciate
your assistance. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding our
request, please feel free to contact our editorial assistant, Whitney Smith,
by phone at (502) 564-1792, or email at whitney.smith(a)ky.gov.
Thank you for your attention to this request.
