Civil War Sound Group Update

This week our group had two major tasks centered on creating and curating our dataset. The first was to search out a body of words related to sound which would help us broaden and define the keywords we will use to draw out the sources for the sound events on the first day at the battle. Thus far we have not found a previously created work. This means that we have find tools to create this word list. The whole group worked, and is continuing to work on this particular task. The second task was to learn text scrapping to help to automate the data gathering process and thus save time while working with the data. We had one member begin the process of learning it because she will be responsible for that portion of working with the dataset. We also began to discuss a timeline for the work plan, one which would fit the timeline for the semester
