Nathan Shotwell, Presbyterian minister who held pulpits in antebellum Virginia and North Carolina and in Tennessee after the Civil War; and correspondence and scrapbooks of his son, Randolph Abbott Shotwell (1844-1885), Confederate officer, North Carolina editor, and politician prominent on the conservative side of Reconstruction. Manuscript sermons and sermon notes by Nathan Shotwell comprise more than half of the collection.
