      NOTE: National Archives and Records Administration
      "The Heritage of the Past is the Seed that Brings Forth the Harvest ofthe Future" reads the carving on one of the stone statues flanking theNational Archives Building. These words reflect the purpose of theNational Archives--to hold in trust the permanently valuable recordsof the Federal government for the use of citizens and scholars alike.The National Archives acquires, preserves, and makes available forresearch records of enduring value created or received by all threebranches of the federal government. The National Archives also acceptsdonations of related materials, particularly in the audiovisual field.
      Since 1934 when the National Archives was established by an act ofCongress, it has initiated numerous programs to fulfill its mandate.These include a technically advanced preservation laboratory with ahighly trained staff, which works to preserve billions of pieces ofpaper and millions of still and moving pictures; an aggressivemicrofilming program which preserves heavily used materials in orderto make them more widely available to the public; and exhibitions oforiginal documents and workshops produced by education experts at theNational Archives to disseminate information to casual visitors andclassrooms about the American documentary heritage.
      This cooperative project planned by the National Park Service and theNational Archives is yet another avenue to increase accessibility.Information on Civil War veterans has long been a primary interest tomillions of Americans. The National Archives receives nearly 1,500inquiries each week relating to pension files of Civil War veterans.This project-to make vital information about Civil War veteranselectronically available-- could have an enormous impact on students,scholars, and genealogists interested in the Civil War.
      The National Archives views this project as an invaluable researchtool to encourage historical inquiry and as an invaluable preservationtool to diminish the use of original records. Not only can thousandsof man-hours be freed for other archival duties, the documents canthen be protected from handling and thereby be better preserved forfuture generations.
