Some pamphlets were commissioned but never published. The reasons for these cancellations vary, but many of them could not be finished and edited to satisfaction before the end of the war. When a pamphlet was cancelled the copyright was given back to the author. Therefore, these pamphlets cannot be published, though the original drafts are available in the AHA Papers in the Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress.
