Internship Day 3



Day 3- January 20th


Today I continued working on the Watson Collection. I worked on Box 6. I found a book commeorating the 50th Annivesary of the Battle of Gettysburg. It wasn't in great shape, but it was still pretty nice. I also found this book that was a 1879 report of schools for the orphans of soldiers. It had a doodle of two faces on it in the front, which was pretty cool. I liked those personal touches.


There was a couple who were looking up information about a woman from their family who had a gravestone listing her as being dead in 1898, yet she's still present in the 1900 census. Neat mystery- it wasn't solved by the time they left, but it was great seeing how this couple was getting helped by the volunteer archivists.
