In the course, LIS 61095: Research & Reference Methods for Local History and Genealogy, our project was to put together a website detailing the lives of four Civil War soldiers from a chosen regiment as well as list information on their community and unit’s history. I came to enjoy this project so much, that I chose to continue it after the course was completed.
I obtained a domain to house this project, the name of the website coming from the nickname of my chosen unit, the 4th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry. Company C came from Delaware County, OH and went by then nickname of the Delaware Guards. You can follow along with the project and learn about the soldiers that fought in this unit at www.delawareguards.com. The site is still fairly sparse at this point in time, but I expect to add to it as time goes on.
