Abstract:

This series consists of letterbooks containing copies of letters to and from the Governor, 1821-1849, 1861-1865. Most of the copies are of outgoing letters, though some incoming letters are also included. Some of the letters are routine in nature and may have been written for the Governor by the Secretary of State. Many of the letters concern important administrative decisions or express the opinion of the Governor on controversial subjects. Included are letters of Governors Pickens, G. Moore, S. Moore, Murphy, Gayle, Clay, Bagby, Fitzpatrick, Martin, Chapman, Shorter and Watts.

Topics discussed include slavery, public lands, banks and banking, the militia, Indian affairs, internal improvements, surveys of boundary lines with Ga. and Fla., social welfare, state finances, the 1840s war with Mexico and the Civil War. Of particular interest are Gov. Gabriel Moore's views on prison reform, Gov. Gayle's position on the removal of white settlers from Creek Indian lands in 1833, the removal of the Cherokee Indians from the state, Ala.'s participation in the Mexican War, and the Civil War. The bulk of the Governors' incoming correspondence is described in the various series of each Governor's administration.

The 1861 Dec. 5-1863 May 12 letters are indexed alphabetically by correspondent's name.
