Abstract:

Civil War and political papers of John B. Vinet. Military papers consist of dispatches, field orders, vouchers, travel expense accounts, passes, receipts, commissions, and correspondence, among other items. Some specific items include account statements and receipts for food purchased for the Confederate troops; Vinet's expense accounts (1863) for travel and surveying excursions in Mississippi and Alabama; and a map depicting Confederate fortifications around in Macon County, Alabama. Documents related to Vinet's various post-Civil War appointments are also present. A notebook (1861) kept by G.R. Stankey, a physician of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, contains remedies, many of which are in French, for various maladies. Two case record books belonging to Vinet pertain to relief administered by the Howard Association, a New Orleans philanthropic society organized to give aid to indigents, particularly during yellow fever epidemics. Entries record statistics compiled by Vinet during the 1878 yellow fever epidemic, such as individuals who received relief, where they lived, place of birth, nationality, and attending physicians and nurses. Two of the three published volumes address military tactics, and the remaining volume describes the funeral ceremonies honoring James A. Garfield, held in New Orleans in September of 1881.
