Historians, genealogists, and researchers have a window of opportunity to view more than 115,000 U.S. Military Academy application documents dating to West Point's early years. Beginning with Veterans Day and running through Sunday, November 14, there will be no charge when viewing these images on Ancestry.com, a genealogy website. Thereafter, when searching from home, a person would need a subscription. However, the New City Library offers this database in the library as an ongoing free database. Documents such as the papers of Lt. Col. George Custer and Gen William Tecumseh Sherman are there for the viewing.
