Archival Adventures: Joshua Gilman Hawkes Papers, 1852-1870

It's time for an adventure! Join our community collections archivist, Anthony Wright de Hernandez, for a livestream on Twitch! Every week we explore and discuss materials from Special Collections and University Archives covering topics including university history, NASA pioneers, architecture, science fiction, cooking, LGBTQ+ history, Black history, urban legends, and more. Recordings of previous streams are available on the Libaries' Youtube page.

This week on Archival Adventures we're exploring the Joshua Gilman Hawkes Papers. Hawkes was a soldier in Company D, 52nd Massachusetts Infantry during the American Civil War. The collection includes various letters written by him during the war. Check out the finding aid here: https://ead.lib.virginia.edu/vivaxtf/view?docId=vt/viblbv01111.xml and join us on stream to look at the letters!
