If you enjoy transcribing historical documents, you might be interested in this announcement:
This transcription project is a collaboration between historians, social scientists, and the African American Civil War Museum. Their goals are to improve our knowledge of the African Americans who fought for freedom in the American Civil War, to provide descendants with access to information on their ancestors, and to present students of history with primary documents from a pivotal moment in African American history. To do this we are building a comprehensive database of the estimated 200,000 soldiers who formed the United States Colored Troops (USCT).
