New York Civil War
Newspaper clipping files

Notes: The New York State Military Museum has newspaper clippings from the Civil War on 219 New York units. These range in length from 1 to 140 pages. We are in the process of scanning this collection and making it available over the internet.

Due to size restrictions we will not make the original scans available; rather, just the text will be put online.

Here is what an original looks like. This is the 1st Mounted Rifles.
This view this article you must have the Adobe's Acrobat Reader. This is free software that can be downloaded here:

These clipping files were compiled by the Bureau of Military Statistics during the War. Unfortunately, most clippings do not indicate either a source or date. Compounding this confusion is the fact that the clippings are not in chronological order. We have attempted to keep our transcriptions as close to the clippings as possible. This includes staying with the spelling as it is in the original. The one time we will make changes is when two portions of an article are not logically situated.

Below is list of the unites we have clipping files on and who many pages each file includes. If the unit is a hyperlink then the file has been completed.

Many thanks to Steve Lawrence for preforming the optical character recognition for this project. This is by far the most difficult part of the project. See this for exactly what Steve has accomplished.
