The Emancipation Project – Professor Ritchie Garrison’s HST 411 class, “The Emancipation Project,” created this website as a public resource about the Union Army’s Massachusetts 54th Black Regiment. The site features profiles of individual soldiers, explorations into Civil War material culture, and a digital transcription of Regiment Quartermaster John Ritchie’s diary. For more on students’ experience, check out UDaily 09/16/2013.
