Manuscripts of Early National and Antebellum America
Introduction

The Department of Special Collections' Early National and Antebellum manuscript classification includes all manuscript groups originating, wholly or primarily, in North America in the years 1788 to 1860. The great majority of these items originated in the United States. "Manuscripts of Early National and Antebellum America" contains collection-level descriptions of the Department's processed holdings in this area, accessible via the menu at left. Individual collections are typically distinguished by unity of provenance; consequently, the collections described on this site vary greatly in size, from a single manuscript to more than seven hundred.

Questions and comments regarding this Web page should be directed to its general editor, George Rugg.
