The purpose of this website is to increase knowledge and understanding of the American Civil War, 1861-1865, and its aftermath. This website will provide original books, articles, photographs and other research materials on the American Civil War.  The material will be available free of charge and will be fully searchable and downloadable.  All of this material is out of copyright, and is freely available.

We will be making books available on both the Union and Confederate Armies.

This website is being made available by the family and descendants of General Henry Warner Slocum, who served with distinction throughout the Civil War.

Please feel free to share this material with fellow researchers and those interested in the American Civil War.

We will be continually adding materials to this website. If there are books or materials that are out of copyright that you would like to see included in this collection, we would be happy to try to add them. If you have research materials you would like us to include, please contact us.
