Series II, the "Cavalry Album," contains mostly items related to various Civil War cavalry units collected by Cronin, then inlaid and bound together. The pages were, at some point, disbound and foldered. Some material in the album is arranged alphabetically by soldier, and includes correspondence, reminiscences, addresses, military documents, and published items. Cronin's folder contains a portrait and military documents. Some post-war correspondence (both Union and Confederate) has been filed separately. Further material relating to soldiers, mostly portraits, is arranged by cavalry. Units from New York, Pennsyvania, and New Jersey are represented, as well as U.S. Cavalry. In addiiton , the Cavalry Album contains several portraits of army nures, images of army camps, inventory reports, muster rolls, dispatches, orders, and newspaper clippings, especially those related to the assissination of Abraham Lincoln. This series also contains an incomplete manuscript draft of the "History of the Fifteenth Pennsyvania Cavalry."
The handwritten memoirs entitled "War Reminiscences" by Major W.W. [William Worthington] Goldbsorough of the Confederate Army, 2nd Maryland Infantry, discuss John Brown's raid, an aborted trip to Baltimore by Lincoln, unrest in Baltimore at the start of the war, Conferedate army camp life, activities in maryland and Virginia, truce meetings, and the battle of Gettysburg. Also included are numerous newsapper clippings of Civil War reminiscences written by Goldsborough for the Philadelphia Record (1899-1900), which detail his experiences in 2nd Bull Run, Malvern, Antietam, Fort Pulaski, and Morris Island. The articles are mounted and annotated by Goldsborough. This series also contains portraits of Goldsborough, both sketches and photographs, a photograph of a 2nd Maryland Infantry C.S.A. memorial, and several obituaries of Goldsborough.
The bulk of the correspondence in the collection consists of letters addressed by Cronin to his friend and patron, Daniel Parish, Jr., 1887-1909. Letters discuss Cronin's work on "Evolution of a Life," the Cavalry Album, "The Culprit Fay," his bibliography, Goldsborough's memoirs, and other endeavors, sometimes detailing the lives of particular personages found in his works and reminiscing about his service in the Civil War. A number of letters deal with his relationship with Parish, illuminating aspects of their occasionally contentious artist-patron relationship. Cronin also muses on the life of the artist in his correspondence. Papers also contain volumes illustarted by Cronin, including two copies of Joseph Redman Drake's poem The Culprit Fay, a copy of a limited edition Bibliography Relating to the Works Hand Illustrated by David Edward Cronin, and The Vest Mansion: Its Historical and Romantic Associations As Confederate and Union Headquarters, 1862-1865, written and illustrated by Cronin.
