With the closure of the Georgia Archives, many historians are searching for other research sources. During my research for I Will Give Them One More Shot, I was fortunate to stumble on many online sources of information. Over the next several posts, I would like to share these in hopes that they might prove useful to others.
Newspapers were an especially rich source - full of news items, posted letters and even advertisements. The Digital Library of Georgia site gives views of several important Georgia newspapers, including the Atlanta Southern Confederacy, Milledgeville Federal Union, Columbus Enquirer, Macon Telegraph and many others. This website can be accessed here. You will need a DjVu player installed on your computer to read the files - the player is a free download here.
