The Richmond Daily Dispatch (1860 - 1865) has been digitized and is now available online. It is completely searchable and chock full of stories that haven't seen the light of day in the past 140 years.  This is the result of a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and collaboration between the University of Richmond, Tufts University's Perseus Project, and the Virginia Center for Digital History.

Learn, first hand, what was happening from some of the people making it happen here in the Capital of the Confederacy.

You can search for a word or phrase as well as browse by date or by calendar year.

Have fun and we appreciate all the help we can get in letting people know that the Dispatch is up and ready to use.

It really is a great resource!

There's another one here that allows searching of several Pennsylvania Civil War newspapers (including the Gettysburg paper).
