Definition of a Document

All of Mississippi's governors' Correspondence and Papers, Military Telegrams, Letters and Petitions, and Executive Journals from 1859-1882 are included in this comprehensive digital documentary edition. That includes nine administrations and eight governors (one served twice). The only items eliminated from this otherwise comprehensive project are duplicate documents such as copies of letters and receipts that comprise an estimated one percent of the entire collection. These duplicates are tracked internally in the calendar indexes and maintained at MDAH.
