Congrats on some great resources. I handle and often read a great many old books. One of the most interesting recently was John Muir's "A Thousand Mile Walk to the Gulf." He traipsed from Indianapolis to the coast of Florida right after the Civil War, and describes races, persons, and places. In fact, in some southern mountains Confederate mounted troops were still active. These first-hand accounts are direct information on by-gone days.
