My passion is preserving primary materials connected with the history of the United States of America — particularly the period leading up to and including the American Civil War. I have transcribed thousands of letters and dozens of diaries from this period which are posted on various blogsites I manage, many of them under the general heading of “Spared & Shared.”

If you have any primary source materials you would like transcribed and preserved in this manner, please contact me at and I will get back to you.
