Civil War Wayne Whalen Digital Archive of the Grand Army of the Republic and Civil War Collections
The Civil War was fought on the battlefield and at home. On these pages patrons can examine artifacts from both fronts in detailed photographs. Click on the images for closeup views of elements not easily discernible to the eye, such as maker’s marks on swords. The Wayne Whalen Digital Archive of the Grand Army of the Republic and Civil War Collections is made possible by generous gifts to the Chicago Public Library Foundation by the partners of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in honor of Wayne Whalen’s interest in Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War.
