Civil War & Reconstruction Governors of Mississippi (CWRGM) is a digital documentary project that engages scholars, teachers, students, and the public with the historical lessons of democracy. Grounded in over 20,000 documents that span the period from the secession crisis through the early Jim Crow South, CWRGM is uncovering the voices that, despite scholars' efforts over the last several decades, remain buried in vast archival collections. Because Americans — regardless of class, race, or gender — contacted their governors with abandon during the Civil War and Reconstruction, these papers offer insights into nearly every major issue of the age in Mississippi.
