Abstract:

The Charles Carroll collection is an artificial collection formed by both original and copied letters and documents, some related to the interests of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, and others related to persons and events important during the Revolutionary period and the years immediately following. Important in this collection are copies of letters written by the elder Carroll to his son. Much of this correspondence deals with the construction and furnishing of Homewood House. The house was meant as a wedding present to young Carroll and his wife, Harriet Chew (1775-1861), but Carroll, Sr. continually expressed his displeasure over the mounting charges. (The final total was $40,000, four times what had been expected.) These letters are photocopied transcripts. Location of the originals is unknown. Items related to the family estate, Doughoregan, include a listing of slaves held in 1834 and a drawing of the plot, 1867. Holographic letters of American Revolutionary figures, Lafayette, Thomas Cooper, Alexander Hamilton, Benedict Arnold, and Nathanael Greene are included. Of interest too are holographic letters of persons important during the period following the American Revolution: Joshua Barney, Bernard U. Campbell, Richard Stoddert Ewell, John F. Mercer, and William Scott, all American military officers. Their letters contain some references to the War of 1812. Other correspondents include Baltimore historian Brantz Mayer.
