The House Divided research engine offers access to thousands of historic images and records covering a period from 1840 to 1880. Visitors enter the site exactly 150 years ago from today allowing them to experience everything from the headlines of the moment
to profiles of the people who were celebrating birthdays at that time. All collections have been connected in easy-to-navigate ways designed to help visitors discover relationships and learn more background, transforming the usual “search engine” experience. Although still in “draft edition,” this new research engine is growing and improving every day with the goal of becoming a premier learning resource for all teachers and students of the Civil War Era.
