American Civil War - Library of Congress "American Memory"
A Civil War Soldier in the Wild Cat Regiment: Selections from the Tilton C. Reynolds Papers
Since watching Ken Burn's PBS series on the American civil war, I find I am more interested in this than before. This site has a lot of very interesting features and items.
Quoting from the site:
A Civil War Soldier in the Wild Cat Regiment: Selections from the Tilton C. Reynolds Papers documents the Civil War experience of Captain Tilton C. Reynolds, a member of the 105th Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers. Comprising 164 library items, or 359 digital images, this online presentation includes correspondence, photographs, and other materials dating between 1861 and 1865. The letters feature details of the regiment's movements, accounts of military engagements, and descriptions of the daily life of soldiers and their views of the war. Forty-six of the letters are also made available in transcription.
