The microfilm edition compiles sources from 202 libraries and government agencies and 671 different periodicals. Working with photocopies, the editors arranged the documents for greatest intellectual clarity. Each item is marked to indicate source; names, descriptions, and dates are supplied on the basis of editorial research; and the editors selected the most reliable and complete record when several texts purported to document the same event or writing. Series 1, in reels 1-3, includes all issues of the Revolution, the weekly newspaper published from 1868 to 1872. Series 2, in reels 4-5, contains the National Woman Suffrage Collection of the Chicago Historical Society—1,600 cards and letters written in 1880 by American women expressing why they wanted to vote. Series 3, reels 6-45, is a chronological series that interfiles the papers of Stanton and Anthony.
