If you have any documents from the Civil War, like a letter, map or a picture, you will have the chance to easily share it with the public.
The Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission and the Library of Virginia will be at the Massanutten Regional Library main branch to scan historic documents from that period, as part of the Civil War 150 legacy project.
Anything you bring in must be unpublished, and you will get to keep the original material.
Reference librarian Susan Versen said everything scanned will be available for the public to see on the Library of Virginia website under the "Digital Memory" section.
"You can search by geographic location, by a particular battle, so they're not only scanning it - then they're going to index it so people doing research on particular topics can use this database to find information," said Versen.
Versen said there is space for walk-ins, but recommends calling ahead of time.
You can bring the documents to the library on South Main Street on June 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
