New Resources

Explore the Resources of the American Antiquarian Society
Through our partnership with OhioLINK, Ohio Wesleyan library users now have access to an extensive collection of American periodicals published between 1684 and 1912.

Read the Letters of an OWU Student and Union Soldier
The OWU Historical Collection has published a collection of Civil War-era letters to the university’s institutional repository, Digital Commons @ OWUThe Paula B. and Thomas W. Harvey Collection of Civil War Letters consists of 240 handwritten letters, authored primarily by former Ohio Wesleyan student Thomas Sumption Armstrong (1835-1909) and George Washington Porter (1838-1888).

The letters detail the experiences of Union soldiers during the course of the war and the aspects of their daily lives that they shared with family members. To facilitate research in the collection, each letter has been cataloged and is accompanied by a full transcription.
