WWII Combat StoryMap: 103rd Infantry Division
In 2015, the 103rd Infantry Division (Cactus) World War II Association donated its entire World War II archive to the Dale Center for the Study of War & Society at Southern Miss. Since that time, the Dale Center and Special Collections at USM's University Libraries has cared for the original website and Division's archival collection of documents and other items.
In 2022, the Dale Center began a new, multi-year digital humanities project designed to create a new website highlighting the wartime history of the division along with a digital document collection of the division's historical record. In October, 2023, the new 103rd Infantry Division Digital Humanities Project website was launched. As part of that project, the Dale Center's 103rd Infantry Division project team created an interactive, digital-narrative timeline and map of the Division's history, called a StoryMap.
