About

Resurrecting the First American West
This project will "resurrect" and expand the Library of Congress American Memory Project, First American West, the Ohio River Valley, 1750-1820 (FAW), which was taken down in 2016. The Filson Historical Society, the University of Chicago, and the Library of Congress contributed material to this pioneering work of digital history. Now, the Filson seeks transcriptions for both the original documents published in FAW as well as new selections that expand the range of diverse voices represented in the vibrant and globally contested Ohio River Valley of the late-18th and early-19th century.
