Readex’s first thematic Archive of Americana collection, The Civil War: Antebellum Period to Reconstruction, was recently ranked among the “Best of the Best” electronic resources reviewed by ChoiceMagazine last year. In the May 2009 issue, Arkansas State University's James Foreman wrote:

Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers; general readers.
