A 19th-century ledger and scrapbook from the Coastal Heritage Society features entries from the the Civil War period recorded by employees of the Central Rail Road and Banking Company of Georgia. Now digitized, the items can be found at https://dlg.usg.edu/collection/chso_cgrc.
The ledger was digitized and described as part of the Digital Library of Georgia's 2018 Competitive Digitization grant program, a funding opportunity intended to broaden DLG partner participation for statewide historic digitization projects.
The Digital Library of Georgia is pleased to share the fourth in a series of printable posters and postcards for K-12 educators and students, based upon the Georgia 8th Grade Social Studies Standards of Excellence (GSE). These resources provide high quality, standards-aligned materials that help teachers meet the varying academic interests and needs of their students.
The latest poster is for the SS8H5 module, Analyze the impact of the Civil War on Georgia, which includes Document, State of Georgia, appointment of Henry L. Benning to rank of Colonel of the 19th Regiment of Georgia Volunteers, August 17, 1861, courtesy of the Columbus State University Archives.
The poster and postcard, as well as previous releases, are downloadable at:
