The Revolutionary Era Pinckney Statesmen of South Carolina: A Digital Documentary Edition

Preparation for digital publication of the personal and public papers of three South Carolina statesmen: Charles Cotesworth Pinckney (1746-1825), Thomas Pinckney (1750-1828), and Charles Pinckney (1757-1824). (36 months)

This "born-digital" edition will focus on three Pinckney men who participated as military, political, diplomatic, and economic leaders in South Carolina and the nation during and after the American Revolution: brothers Charles Cotesworth Pinckney (1746-1825) and Thomas Pinckney (1750-1828) and their cousin Charles Pinckney (1757-1824). The edition, to be published by the University of Virginia Press, will identify, collect, transcribe, verify, annotate and publish in a selective digital scholarly edition transcriptions, not digital facsimiles, of approximately 3,000 documents of the three men's personal and public papers created between 1750 and 1828. We request funding for 3 years of a new projected seven year project. The project will be housed within the History Department of the University of South Carolina. It will use a DocTracker/FileMaker Pro data base system to manage the editorial process and prepare content for digital publication.
