Abraham Lincoln Papers

On February 12, the anniversary of Lincoln's birth, the Library of Congress (LOC) American Memory Project and the Lincoln Studies Center at Knox College made public the first release from The Complete Abraham Lincoln Papers at the Library of Congress, which totals approximately 20,000 documents. The complete collection is organized into three "General Correspondence" series. This release, which includes 2,200 annotated documents (about 6,500 images), comprises series one and contains correspondence dated from March 1829 through June 1864 that was originally gathered by Robert Todd Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln's son. Users can browse the collection chronologically or search by keyword. The site also includes two special presentations featuring original documents and images on the Emancipation Proclamation and Lincoln's assassination.
