Decoding the Civil War Challenge - Update
We wanted to give everyone working on Decoding the Civil War
a quick update on our seventh day?halfway through?of the 10 ledger 2 week challenge. Because of your enthusiasm and hard work, on Sunday you finished the first 10 ledgers. We still need to process and review these ledgers before they are available to the public, but this is exactly what we hoped for! You have completed an incredible 6,342 classifications, an average of 1,000 transcriptions a day, in the last six days. We are far exceeding our goal of 425 classifications per day!
Now, because of this incredible feat of 10 ledgers in 6 days, which has been mind blowing in a very good way, we would love to tap into your enthusiasm, and beg upon your good graces, and tackle another set of ten ledgers. On Friday we prepared, just in case, a new set of ten. These ten have been called onto the stage and have been added to the challenge. This next set is quite exciting, it includes a letter press volume. We are now focusing the challenge on 20 ledgers in 2 weeks. We can do this!
We would also like to thank all our veteran volunteers who have stepped up and helped out on the Talk Boards. Thank you!
