Abstract

Work in history requires analysis, inference, and ultimately trying to know the unknowable. Such work is exciting, yet as educators we are often restrained in our efforts to help our students see the full potential of history. Wiring the Past: The Lincoln Telegram Project has been designed to reimagine history education as a creative disciplinary experience supported through online communities and public work. The project includes the creative digitization of telegram memos written by President Abraham Lincoln, the analysis of these historical documents in online environments using open-source wiki technology, the publication of research using the full collection of digitized telegram memos, and development of a community of teachers and students working to improve their disciplinary skills and their knowledge of the Lincoln presidency.
