Civil War: A Brooklyn Viewpoint

Greetings Civil War Researchers:

I'm sure that many of us would never think of linking Brooklyn New York to the Civil War.

Thanks to the Brooklyn Library, I've uncovered news articles, an interactive map and presentation on Civil War.

A second and equally important resource is the online
newspaper "The Brooklyn Eagle." (1841 to 1902). You can search for articles about their coverage of the Civil War. If you plug in "Negro" "Colored" soldier etc, you'll find articles on African Americans covering the years mentioned above,
