Hello, my name is Hunter Dykhuis and I am a History Major with a minor in Computer Science. I decided to take this class because I was looking for a 400 level history class that I could take this semester and I had taken a class with Dr. McClurken last semester so there was History 428. I am excited to work on this project about the Civil War Letters and for this class in general because it seemed like an interesting class.

Digital History seems to focus on more of the historical aspect of digital media to be able to further the process of historical analysis. Basically making it a branch of the Digital Humanities. Digital Humanities is the process of integrating digital technologies and humanities, hence why Digital History is included in this.
