There’s a plethora of artifacts waiting to be discovered on the Vigo County Indiana Civil War Sesquicentennial Project website. Take, for instance, this solid brass cartridge box that is part of the Vigo County Historical Society’s collection. It was used by John T. Merry during the Civil War. This particular artifact has multiple photographs for better viewing.
Also participating in this special 150th anniversary Civil War website are the Vigo County Public Library and the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, in conjunction with Indiana State University’s Cunningham Memorial Library.
The project has been funded by a Library Services Technology Act Digitization Grant (LSTA).
