Civil War Governors of Kentucky Digital Documentary Edition

Preparation for digital publication of the papers of the governors of Kentucky during the Civil War. (36 months)

The Civil War Governors of Kentucky Digital Documentary Edition (CWGK) is a freely accessible online collection of historical documents associated with the chief executives of the state--three Union and two provisional Confederate. Yet CWGK is about far more than the five governors. The project works through the office of the governor to preserve the diverse and largely unknown lives of tens of thousands of Kentuckians, opening new windows onto the compelling, important, and overlooked narratives.
