These are the end products formulated by the digital tools used to create the analysis of the text from both published and unpublished letters written by soldiers. This project came from work and study done within a "Digital Histories" course at Clemson University. Class instruction material can be viewed at another blog site on wordpress.com by clicking the button below.
This case study of letters were taken from the 1917 published volume of letters of a young French painter who died on the front in one of the battles of Argonne.
The following are the charts of the core word, raw frequency of 'war' and 'home.' The raw frequency is the number of times the word appears in each letter. The dates of the letters appear on the bottom. Some collections have a multitude of letters and the dates are grouped tightly, and may be unreadable presently.To access the information click here - Voyant-tools.

Notes from the Author
The word clouds in each case study are generated either by importing text from published letters found on Gutenberg.org or importing the transcribed letter text from my personal collections.
