The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods are partnering with Wabash Valley Vision and Voices (WV3) to digitize more than 1,000 Civil War era items in an effort to preserve content of original documents and promote local renewed research as the nation prepares for the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War.

Also partnering in the project are the Indiana State University’s Cunningham Memorial Library, the Vigo County Public Library and the Vigo County Historical Society.

Group members plan to digitize field journals, letters, discharge papers, photographs, medals ribbons, canteens, uniforms and more. After the items are processed, they will be fully accessible for online research at By digitizing material, preservation of the often-fragile documents will be maintained.


The digitization of Civil War memorabilia is made possible by a Library Services and Technology Act Mini-Digitization Grant from the Indiana State Library.
