About This Project

Sixth Regiment Massachusetts Troops - from the Cator Collection of Baltimore Views"150 Years Ago this Week in the Civil War" is a project of the Periodicals Department of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Drawing from its collection of historical newspapers from around the State of Maryland, the Periodicals Department will post one 150 year-old newspaper article every week for the four year duration of the anniversary of the Civil War. These articles will capture the political and daily life struggles that Marylanders faced as their cities, towns, and fields became battlefields in the difficult conflict that divided the Nation. Over time, the collected articles will provide a valuable resource for students of the conflict in secondary schools throughout the state.
