Abstract:

This collection consists largely of the correspondence of Edmund Ruffin with family members and political colleagues, primarily concerning agricultural reform and farming operations at "Beechwood," "Coggin's Point," and "Shellbanks" in Prince George County, "Cabin Point" in Surry County, and "Marlbourne" in Hanover County, Va. Also, includes correspondence among his children and letters written by several of his sons while serving in various units of the Confederate States Army.

Also, includes Ruffin's correspondence concerning agricultural reform and experimental agriculture, African-American slavery, southern rights, and secession. Correspondents include Nathaniel Francis Cabell, Charles Campbell, John Henry Hammond, Robert Barnwell Rhett, and John Tyler.

Also, includes Ruffin's 1843 diary kept as agricultural surveyor of South Carolina; autobiographical "incidents of my life" covering the period 1821-1851, in part concerning the establishment of the Farmer's Register, Shellbanks and Petersburg, Va., and the Virginia Agricultural Society; and essays and speeches concerning agriculture, slavery, and Ruffin's opposition to African colonization.

Also, includes diaries, 1843-1847, of Julian Calx Ruffin, concerning farming operations at "Ruthven," Prince George County, Va.
