Papers, 1766-1885 (156 items) document activities of three generations of the Chesnut family and life in antebellum Camden, S.C.; papers, 1766-1805, of John Chesnut, (1743-1813), the founder of the Chesnut family in S.C., concern his plantation, legal and business affairs, including two papers of his foster father, Jaspar Sutton, and documents relating to Chesnut's mercantile partnership with Ely Kershaw. The second Chesnut generation is represented by James Chesnut, Sr. (1773-1866), whose papers, 1801-1856, include a letter from John Peter Richardson, later governor of South Carolina, discussing at length his observations on national politics while serving in Congress, and comparing the presidential aspirations of Daniel Webster, Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun

Papers of three prominent South Carolinians of the antebellum period, James Chesnut, Jr. (1815-1885), a prominent secessionist and member of the South Carolina legislature and later an aide to General Beauregard; his father-in-law, Stephen Decatur Miller (1787-1838); and a contemporary, John Lawrence Manning (1816-1889), governor from 1852 to 1854. The collection consists primarily of correspondence related to personal affairs and to social and economic conditions on South Carolina plantations, rather than to politics. Miller served as governor and U.S. Senator between 1820 and 1833, and some of the correspondence relates to the issue of nullification. Also present are several photographs and a genealogy
