The Revolutionary Era Pinckney Statesmen of South Carolina: A Digital Documentary Edition: Phase 2

Preparation for digital publication of the personal and public papers of three South Carolina statesmen: Charles Cotesworth Pinckney (1746-1825), Thomas Pinckney (1750-1828), and Charles Pinckney (1757-1824). (36 months)

This "born-digital" edition will focus on three Pinckney men who participated as military, political, diplomatic, and economic leaders in South Carolina and the nation during and after the American Revolution: brothers Charles Cotesworth Pinckney (1746-1825) and Thomas Pinckney (1750-1828) and their cousin Charles Pinckney (1757-1824). The edition, to be published by the University of Virginia Press, will identify, collect, transcribe, verify, annotate and publish in a selective digital scholarly edition transcriptions, not digital facsimiles, of approximately 3,000 documents of the three men's personal and public papers created between 1750 and 1828. We request funding for three years of the second phase of a projected seven-year project, to be completed by 2020. The project will be housed within the History Department of the University of South Carolina. It will use a DocTracker/FileMaker Pro database system to manage the editorial process and prepare content for digital publication.
