We'd like to announce the launch of a new crowd-sourcing transcription project, African American Civil War Soldiers. We are building a comprehensive database of the estimated 200,000 soldiers who fought for their freedom in the American Civil War. We are currently transcribing the soldiers military records and hope to later include the pension records of surviving veterans.
CEMERS, the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Binghamton University (SUNY), is organizing this conference, which will take place on October 19–20, 2018. The deadline for proposals is May 1.
