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.
