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 (CWG-K) is bringing together the records of Kentucky's Civil War chief executives, the three Union governors, Beriah Magoffin (1859-62), James F. Robinson (1862-63), and Thomas E. Bramlette (1863-67), and the two provisional Confederate governors, George W. Johnson (1861-62) and Richard Hawes (1862-65). A documentary edition of all papers associated with all five Kentucky Civil War governors will quickly become a required evidentiary source for any serious researcher investigating this region and its history in this era. CWG-K promises to become an indispensable tool for the exploration of nationally significant questions related to the Civil War.
