The Civil War Governors of Kentucky Digital Documentary Edition (CWG-K) is building a research database that will allow researchers to track individual Kentuckians, understand their social and kinship networks, economic systems, patterns of political patronage and more by identifying, imaging, transcribing, annotating and linking together more than 30,000 Civil War-era documents from archives across the nation. This powerful tool will change the way genealogists, historians and teachers access, understand and interpret Kentucky history.
- 12:30 pm – Civil War CSI: Murder, Politics and the Louisville Horse Pile
Just one document can raise new and fascinating questions. This session will interactively analyze an 1864 Louisville murder. The case seems open-and-shut, but what clues should historians be picking up on here? What does the case say about 19th century Kentucky—urban life, public health, the economy, immigration and ethnicity, civil-military interaction? What about that world is familiar to us? What questions jump out that need further research? What—or who— have historians overlooked in Civil War Kentucky? What can CWG-K help us learn about the dark side of a Kentucky we think we know so well?
