Official Record of the War of the Rebellion

Post by vphill » 12 May 2011, 06:29

Here is a link to a project we've just completed at the University of North Texas, the digitization of the War of the Rebellion for our Portal to Texas History.

127 volumes
137,747 pages

We used ScanTailor for processing all of the images in this collection and found it to be a great tool.

We became aware of ScanTailor and other tools we didn't know about on this forum. Great to finally show off some work we've done with the tools we found here.

Beautifully done - thanks for sharing this with us, and glad that the knowledge here could be of use! If you get a chance, please tell us about your digitization process.
