Summary
  • Valley Project details life in two American communities, one North and one South, from the time of John Brown's Raid through the Age of Reconstruction. Through searchable censuses, newspapers, diaries, military records, maps, images, and other sources this program tells the story of the Civil War as seen by the people of Franklin Co., Pa., and Augusta Co., Va. Details week by week and household by household, the differences and commonalities of the North and South
  • "The Valley of the Shadow looks at the life of residents in Augusta County, Virginia, and Franklin County, Pennsylvania, chronicling their experience of the American Civil War. Intended for students and teachers at both the secondary and college levels, the Valley of the Shadow provides a hypermedia archive of primary sources for a social history of these communities from 1859 through the Reconstruction period. The types of sources that are available include letters, diaries, newspapers, military records, photographs, church records, census records, and pensions. As a resource to explore the first-hand experience of the Civil War from the point of view of both the South and the North, the Valley of the Shadow is indispensable." -- Reviewed March 8, 2004 "Best Free Reference Web Sites 2004," RUSA Quarterly, Fall 2004.
