Civil War Maps - (American Memory from the Library of Congress)
Civil War Maps brings together materials from three premier collections: the Library of Congress Geography and Map Division, the Virginia Historical Society, and the Library of Virginia. Among the reconnaissance, sketch, and theater-of-war maps are the detailed battle maps made by Major Jedediah Hotchkiss for Generals Lee and Jackson, General Sherman’s Southern military campaigns, and maps taken from diaries, scrapbooks, and manuscripts—all available for the first time in one place. Most of the items presented here are documented in Civil War Maps: An Annotated List of Maps and Atlases in the Library of Congress, compiled by Richard W. Stephenson in 1989. New selections from 2,240 maps and 76 atlases held by the Library will be added monthly.
McCarthy Senate Hearings Transcripts

Closed according to Senate rules for 50 years, these hearings are now available to researchers and the public. This five-volume collection of Senate hearings is available online (in PDF format). Volumes 1-4 cover the 1953 hearings, and 1954 hearings are found in volume 5.
Ohio Jewish Chronicle, 1922-1994 (Ohio Memory)
The history of the Columbus Jewish community as recorded weekly in the pages of the Ohio Jewish Chronicle is now available online for viewing and research... it's even keyword searchable. Every page of every edition of OJC from its beginning in 1922 through 1994 is now available.
Grabill Collection - Library of Congress
The one hundred and eighty-eight photographs sent by John C.H. Grabill to the Library of Congress for copyright protection between 1887 and 1892 are thought to be the largest surviving collection of this gifted, early Western photographer's work. Grabill's remarkably well-crafted, sepia-toned images capture the forces of western settlement in South Dakota and Wyoming and document its effects on the area's indigenous communities.
