Among the millions of government documents deposited in the Indiana State Archives are Civil War-era telegrams from President Abraham Lincoln to his stalwart ally, Indiana Gov. Oliver Morton.
Until recently, the telegrams were sitting in cardboard boxes in a state government warehouse designated a decade ago as the “temporary home” for nearly two centuries worth of state records. Now they’re being scanned into the state’s digital archives to eventually join a growing collection of historic government records that can be accessed online at www.indianadigitalarchives.org
