Photographic History of the Civil War[edit]

I would like to upload individual pages of 10 volumes the books called "The Photographic History of the Civil War". These books are public domain because they were published in 1911 in New York. I have converted the highest quality available jpeg2000 files to jpeg. The jpeg files would total about 9.5 GB and there would be about 3,745 files. Right now the jpeg files are on my hard drive. The main reason I want these files uploaded is so we can crop them and add the individual files to the various articles. Someone on the Commons and on Wikisource have both showed interest in doing this work. These comments can be found here and here. Please allow these files to be uploaded. --Mattwj2002 (talk) 20:22, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

All images can be found here:

The Photographic History of the Civil War Volume 1
The Photographic History of the Civil War Volume 2
The Photographic History of the Civil War Volume 3
The Photographic History of the Civil War Volume 4
The Photographic History of the Civil War Volume 5
The Photographic History of the Civil War Volume 6
The Photographic History of the Civil War Volume 7
The Photographic History of the Civil War Volume 8
The Photographic History of the Civil War Volume 9
The Photographic History of the Civil War Volume 10

Opinions[edit]

I created the template {{The photographic history of the Civil War}} which should make the file descriptions easier. Using python upload.py, the following lines should be written with the Volume,next and previous page, and correct source link filled in:

upload.py -keep -noverify File_location -filename:"The photographic history of the Civil War Volume 01 Page 001.jpg" "{{subst:The photographic history of the Civil War|01|001|002}}"

The Zeros are so that they are sorted correctly in Commons Categories (according to page) so that 1 is before 10.--Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 12:17, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

I finished vol2-10. It looks like vol1 is finished too, so I guess the complete job is done now. --Slick (talk) 14:00, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
