Harper’s Weekly Newspapers

We Believe that the most exciting way to study the Civil War, is to watch the war unfold on the pages of Original Harper’s Weekly Newspapers.  Harper’s Weekly was the most popular newspaper during the Civil War, and it featured stunning illustrations, and in depth stories on all the important people and events of the war.  Below, for your research and enjoyment, we present this work in progress. Presently 1861 through 1864 are completed, and the 1865 issues through May are complete.
