Civil War Letters Week 4

This week we drafted our group contract for the project. We have a realistic prospective timeline of milestones that we need to accomplish. The most important thing we are focusing on right now is digitizing the letters. In terms of division of labor, we will all be scanning as many letters as we can each week in order to get them done by the end of the month. We will all be working on different aspects of the website as well. One of the things that we are not sure about is how many extra features, such as topic modeling, we will have time to incorporate into the website. As the project progresses, we should get a better idea of what we will be able to include in the website. We will start working on the website and planning out how we are going to design it soon once we get a little further along in scanning the letters.
