WAR OF THE REBELLION:A COMPILATION OF THE OFFICIAL RECORDS OF THE UNION AND CONFEDERATE ARMIES

 

The  WAR OF THE REBELLION  is regarded as the most extensive and comprehensive compilation of primary sources concerning military operations in the American Civil War(1861-1865). The Official Records of the Union and Confederate Navies in the War of the Rebellion is also on line at  the Cornell University Library MOA Collection. The  Making of America Project is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and  Charles E. Culpeper Foundation. The project operates at the  University of Michigan MOA Library Collection and Cornell University MOA Library Collection . It currently consists of 1,600 books and 50,000 journal articles. The MOA project designers have written that "the  thematic focus of the initial phase--antebellum period through reconstruction, 1850-1877--was chosen for several reasons:

  • the extant literature is manageable, so a cohesive body of material in digital form can be assembled quickly
  • publications from this period are not covered by copyright protection scholarly and general interest in this period of American history remains high, thus increasing the potential of the collection to support the research and teaching needs of the partner institutions
  • this core collection will serve as the foundation for an extended distributed collection as the project grows much of the literature of this period is deteriorating rapidly; to preserve its informational content, the materials must be reformatted".

The description of the Official Record is drawn from GENERAL INDEX (Serial No. 130).
All the volumes of the OR listed here are linked to the  The War of the Rebellion texts at the  Cornell University Library MOA Collection.
 

Each book in the entire work is marked on the back as follows: 1st, with the number designating the series (first, second, third or fourth) to which the volume belongs; 2d, with the volume number of that series; 3d, with the part number of the volume (where the volume consists of more than one book or part). Roman numerals are used to designate the several series, volumes and parts. In addition, each book after Volume XXIII bears a serial, running or book number, in arabic figures, which simply designates the position of that particular book in the entire work and has no connection with the roman numerals used to designate the four series and the various volumes and parts into which the work is divided. The first thirty-five books (Volumes I to XXIII) are not marked with the serial or running numbers here assigned to them, but those numbers, as stated above, appear on all later books, beginning with Volume XXIV, Part I, to which book the serial or running number 36 has been assigned. The serial or running numbers of all the books from 1 to 130 are given in the following statement, although corresponding numbers will not be found printed on the first thirty-five books.
