In 1995, the History Department and Hanover students initiated 
the Hanover Historical Texts Project. The Project's principal aim 
is to make primary texts readily available to students and 
faculty for use in history and humanities courses. 
The texts scanned for the project are all in public domain. The 
electronic forms of the texts created by the HHTP are under 
copyright. Permission to copy and use the texts is granted for 
educational purposes.
