The Writings of George Washington from the Original Manuscript Sources: 1745-1799

One of the most durable and consistently helpful online electronic archives (online since 1992) is the Electronic Text Center at the University of Virginia Library. One of the center's projects of note is a fine collection of the works of one of Virginia's favorite sons, George Washington -- also the country's first president. The site contains a preface, authored by Frank E. Grizzard, Jr. (the senior associate editor of Washington's papers) that talks about the long history of the various attempts to preserve Washington's writings through a variety of media, including microfilm. Visitors looking for a particular letter (or subject) may use the search engine for the complete writings presented here, or may just browse through the various 38 volumes offered here.
