Abstract:

The collection contains letters, commissions, orders, notes, reports, and clippings pertaining to Lee's service in the U.S. cavalry in the West and in the C.S.A. cavalry. Post-Civil War material includes correspondence, speeches, and clippings about Civil War incidents and leaders, especially James Longstreet and the battle of Gettysburg. Other material concerns his travels, his service as consul-general at Havana during the Cuban revolution and in the Spanish American War.

Business interests are represented by correspondence and papers pertinent to the American Animal Tether Company, the Chicago Town Company of Virginia, the Pittsburgh and Virginia Railroad Company, the Rockbridge Company, and the South Boston Improvement Company.

There is some material, chiefly financial and legal documents, of the Lee and related Mason family ancestors including Northern Neck land grants and a deed of gift for a slave, as well as a diary of Mrs. Sidney Smith Lee.

Among items of interest are an 1859 report by Earl Van Dorn on a skirmish with Commanches, confidential communications of Lee, Robert E. Lee and Jeb Stuart including telegrams to Stuart before Yellow Tavern, Fitzhugh Lee's report on the Appomattox campaign, letters regarding events of the Cuban revolution including the Isle of Pines uprising, the U.S.S. Maine, and an incident involving General Shafter, and a letter from a former driver offering to serve in the Spanish American War.
