A book from our Milne Collection

Swansea University Library has a large collection of books relating to the American Civil War, which aids study and research. The Milne Collection has approximately 4,000 books pertaining to the conflict, as well as the Sectional crisis and Reconstruction era. It was gifted in 2010 to the American Studies programme at Swansea University by Civil War enthusiast and educator Mr. Allan Milne, of Cardiff, and continues to grow.

One of the largest of its kind in the United Kingdom, the Milne Collection boasts an impressive assemblage of primary and secondary source materials that document many of the social, political, economic and military aspects of mid- to late-nineteenth century American history.
