Abstract:

Correspondence, a few receipts, documents, and business accounts. Correspondence includes 36 letters written by Hatch. Much is from 1857-1860, with much reference to both Republican and Democrat party interests, including references to Lyman Trumbull, frequent reference to Douglas and specifically to his 1858 speech at Champaign Ill., to the Know-Nothing Party, Loco Focos, opposition to Lincoln, his nomination and election, and the Illinois Central Railroad. The Civil War correspondence deals primarily with the formation of the regiments and military appointments. Several letters from John Nicolay, Lincoln's personal secretary. There are references to Copperheads, recruitment and draft resistance, and the proposed revision of the Illinois constitution in 1862. Other topics include various rail companies, including the Great Western, in which Hatch was involved financially, land speculation, Governor Matteson's Canal Scrip fraud, funds for designing of the Lincoln Monument and management of the "Chicago Republican" by John Nicolay. Throughout, there are letters from family and friends discussing more personal things. Letters from many prominent people of the time.
