We have many of Robert Gould Shaw's letters here in manuscript, together with many other Shaw family papers. These papers are restricted because of fragility and readers must consult access copies. A digital copy of the papers is available online.

The letters are also available (and far more legible) in printed form, edited with a biographical introduction by Russell Duncan. Blue-Eyed Child of Fortune: The Civil War Letters of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw. Russell Duncan, ed. (Athens: University of Georgia Press, 1992).
