Civil War Sesquicentennial

July 29, 2011

With the 150th anniversary underway, the American Civil War is getting a lot of attention. New books are being published, websites launched and events planned to commemorate the sesquicentennial. Indiana played its part in the war, supplying more than 200,000 men for service in the military. Our library has thousands of items concerning Indiana?s role in the Civil War, ranging from soldiers? diaries to sheet music. Check out our new Civil War Researcher?s Guide. It explains how to search our collection and the types of materials we have.

Want to see the items but can?t visit in person? Our Digital Image Collection has a growing collection of over a thousand items concerning the Civil War, available to view online here.

To learn more about upcoming events or other resources throughout the state, visit the Indiana’s Civil War 150th Commemoration 2011-2015 website.


Suzanne Hahn is director of reference services for the IHS Collections and Library. She loves helping people find the information they seek and is perhaps the only librarian ever to get shushed for laughing too loud in a library.
