Journal of Facts in Natural History. Volume 1, 1860-1868
About the Project
Are you interested in insects or an amateur entomologist? Benjamin Dann Walsh, state entomologist of Illinois, penned a two-volume set of field notes entitled “Journal of Facts in Natural History” recording his field activity in the Rock Island area of the Mississippi River from 1860 to 1866. Try your hand at transcribing the first volume of Walsh’s detailed notes of insects in this region and help us expand our understanding of Mississippi River biodiversity during the Civil War.
Transcription level of difficulty: high.
