John Thomas Scharf (May 1, 1843 - February 28, 1898) was a United States historian, author, journalist, antiquarian, politician, lawyer and Confederate States of America soldier and sailor. He is best known for his published historical works. Modern historians and researchers today continue to cite his comprehensive histories as primary source materials. Scharf used a formulaic and detailed approach to preparing his historical works. He contacted everyone who could provide information about his subject and used detail questionnaires to capture responses to his inquiries. The Maryland Historical Society J. Thomas Scharf Collection, 1730s-1892 is a testament to the massive volume of original source materials he amassed as a result of his writings.
