Abstract:

Correspondence [photocopies of typed transcription, no originals] relate to family activities, social visits, health, local weather, and personal experiences. William tells of his cotton plantation in Mississippi, describing African American laborers in the fields and a possible encounter with Confederate troops (July 30, 1864). He gives an account of a trip to West Feliciana Parish, La., meeting a free woman of color, grounds surrounding Westmorland Plantation, and the flooding of the Mississippi River (April 5, 1867). George recounts the explosion and fire on the steamboat R.J. LOCKWOOD (March 6, 1866); describes Plaquemine, La., as a French community, dismissal of his accountant for excessive drinking, and the sinking of the steamboat EVENING STAR (Oct. 14, 1866). William also tells of a yellow fever epidemic in Vicksburg, Miss. (Nov. 2, 1867). In a narrative letter (Dec. 8-26, 1864), Henry Lebre Greene recounts his trip to New Orleans by riverboat during the waning days of the Civil War. He describes social activities; landscapes near Vicksburg and the Mississippi River; Port Hudson, La.; sugar plantations; the City of New Orleans; and Inglesfield Plantation in Madison Parish, La. He compares the slave labor system to the freedmen system on a cotton plantation. Also included is genealogical data by Cherry F. Bamberg (1993).
