David Campmier – Civil War Sound-

The most important task that I had to work on this week was to learn how to write scripts for text scraping the archive we are using for the project. This hasn’t been as intimidating as I thought it would be and this has been helped by working with the tutorials from The Programming Historian website. Working with the archive has also helped to generate words for the Sound Corpus and focus my script learning efforts based on the American Civil War Letters and Diaries archive. I began to put together the presentation for our update; in it we will present the abstract, concept, work plan, and sample data we have gathered as well as the Sound Word corpus.
