The “Everywhere West” digital exhibit is based on an exhibition staged at the Newberry August 10 to October 16, 2010. It contains a selection of unique black-and-white photographs portraying the lives of Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad workers and the communities spawned by the company’s sprawling rail network.

This project aims to provide a more complete understanding of the complex nexus of issues, events, and people that contributed to the causes and effects of the Civil War.
The Newberry Transcription Project uses Civil War soldiers’ letters held in the Newberry Library’s Modern Manuscript Collection to understand the history of America’s bloodiest conflict.
In this exhibition you will see a small sample of rare and special books on religion, published from the thirteenth to the nineteenth centuries that the Newberry collected over the last two decades.
