I stumbled on this site accidentally while looking for something else. The Valley of the Shadow is an electronic archive of two communities in the American Civil War-Augusta County, Virginia (Staunton) and Franklin County, Pennsylvania (Chambersburg). It covers from before the war to reconstruction and includes letters and diaries both soldier and civilian, images, maps, church records, military rosters, newspapers, census records among others. Anyone studying the war in the Shenandoah Valley or Western Pennsylvania will find a treasure trove of information. If you are interested in these areas you can get totally lost here. Just go to:
