Civil War Sound-Group Update

The Civil War Sound group had a few tasks this week. One was to finally finish putting together the sound corpus into a single column list as well as the many derivations of each word already on the list. We need to finish this part of project as soon as possible because it is crucial to another part of the project, using text scraping to mine American Civil War Letters and Diaries database. Which leads to another task, finishing up and test running out scripts. We need to see what the script will give us and how we are going to have to clean the results. Outreach has been fruitful and we have set up several meetings with experts in Civil War history and mapping to guide our work.
