The "Million Letters Campaign” is an initiative sponsored by Chapman University Historian Andrew Carroll to seek out and preserve at least one million war-related correspondences from every conflict in U.S. history, from handwritten missives penned during the American Revolution to emails sent from Iraq and Afghanistan. 

Andrew Carroll is the founding director of the Center for American War Letters (CAWL) at Chapman University, and he is traveling and speaking throughout the US in order to spread the word about why these writings are so important and encourage people to donate their war-related correspondences to CAWL so that they will be preserved forever.
On Thursday, November 16th, 2017 Andrew Carroll will be the featured speaker at the Seminole Historical Society.

In support of Andrew Carroll's "Million Letters Campaign" appearance we are reaching out to the Seminole area community to invite veterans and their families to submit any and all of their "war letters" for permanent curation and preservation in this important national archive.
