The Civil War 150 Legacy Project: Document Digitization and Access is a multi-year initiative to locate, digitize and provide world-wide access to the private documentary heritage of the American Civil War era located throughout Virginia.  Utilizing Local Sesquicentennial Committees established by the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission and through a partnership with the Library of Virginia and a network of statewide connections, the Civil War 150 Legacy Project will provide individuals an opportunity to have their historic letters, diaries and other collections scanned to preserve their valuable intellectual content. This project is to enhance the information available to researchers. We do not appraise, evaluate, or authenticate records.

Staff will be traveling the state to digitize documents- please see the schedule to find out when we’re coming to your area. If you are in the Richmond area and would like to have your collection scanned and submitted to the CW150 Legacy Project web site please contact us at cw150legacy@lva.virginia.gov to schedule an appointment. If you are not in the Richmond area but would like to submit your collection to the CW150 Legacy Project web site you may scan and submit your collections digitally. Please use the remote contribution form to submit scanned images to the Project.
