Tips for Searching ...

Search for a topic, individual keywords, a location, or place.  Don't search for the "name" of the war or individual battle. The wars weren't "named" until later -- think about World War I -- it wasn't I until World War II occurred!

Some beginning search terms are below:

(battle or skirmish) AND location of battle

Battle at XX

*If you can limit by date -- try a few months around the date of the battle (after the date of...)

*Be sure to look at the dates and location of the newspaper coverage.  If it is a local battle, it may or may not have had broad coverage during the time period -- so use the databases below that cover the time period.
