For the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, UNC is doing a blog post every day.
"The concept of Civil War Day by Day is a simple one: every day for the next four years, we will present a document that is 150 years old to the day."
You can link to it on the left under my blog list or here: http://www.lib.unc.edu/blogs/civilwar/

I double dog dare you not to cry.
