Notes
-  "As editor of the periodical The Soldier's Friend, William Oland Bourne sponsored a contest in 1865-1866 in which Union soldiers and sailors who lost their right arms by disability or amputation during the Civil War were invited to submit samples of their penmanship using their left hands. The contest, which awarded a total of $1,000 in prizes for the winning entries, was followed in 1867 by a second contest, which awarded $500 in prizes."--Campaign website.
-  "This campaign launched October 24, 2018 and completed April 14, 2020."--Campaign website.
