MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It's not lost on the Wisconsin Historical Society that this pandemic is history in the making. The ongoing COVID-19 Journal Project is an effort to collect and preserve the first-hand accounts of life during the pandemic for future scholarly use.

It’s a plan not too dissimilar from the organization’s first director Lyman Draper, who collected the journals of soldier’s stationed at Wisconsin’s Camp Randall during the Civil War.

On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Mike Curkov spoke with the Wisconsin Historical Society’s current director Christian Overland about the effort and why it could one day become invaluable.

There’s still time to take part in the project. Click here to learn more.
