Binghamton University’s Discover-e magazine featured images of materials from Binghamton University Libraries’ Special Collections’ Civil War Collections.

The Binghamton University Libraries Civil War Collections consist of sixteen individual collections of materials. Together the collections contain over 1700 letters, diaries, photographs, account books, postcards, and other ephemera which date from the early 1800s to the early 1900s, but are centered on the Civil War years 1861-1865.
