Collection contains 330 images in varied formats of Helm and Todd family members, friends, associates, and family residences. The bulk of the images were in a series of photographic albums collected and arranged by family members. Images include photographs of Confederate General Benjamin Hardin Helm (1831-1863), his wife, Emilie Todd Helm (1836-1930); and their children Katherine Helm (1857-1937), Elodie Helm Lewis (1859-1953), and Benjamin Hardin Helm Jr. (1862-1946). The collection also includes a number of images of relatives of Emilie Todd Helm, including her father, Robert Smith Todd (1791-1849); her brothers, Alexander Todd (1839-1862) and Samuel Briggs Todd (1830-1904); her cousin, Lyman Beecher Todd (1832-1902); and her nephew, Robert Todd Lincoln (1843-1926). The material within this collection relates to the Confederate States of America, officers in the Confederate army, the Civil War history of Kentucky, the Kentucky Confederate Brigade and Cavalry Regiment, the Kentucky estates of Helm Place and Longwood, as well as photographs and portraits from the Civil War. Along with Alexander Todd's 1861 diary and Katherine Helm's sketchbook, the collection includes a number of daguerreotypes, card photographs, black and white photographs, cased photographs, and portrait photographs.
