Abstract:

Chiefly business papers, including surveys, 1883-1899, relating to land development in Virginia and West Virginia, especially mineral resources and timber in the Shenandoah Valley. There is much correspondence of the Gauley Coal Land Association, the Trans-Flat Top Land Association, and the Confederate Monument Association of Staunton. Post Civil War letters discuss various military engagements and maneuvers.

In addition, there is material on Hotchkiss' period of service under Stonewall Jackson as a scout and map-maker during the Civil War, and his teaching career at Mossy Creek Academy in Augusta County and Loch Willow school in Churchville. There are some family letters between Hotchkiss, his wife and daughters; and 20th century papers are about the settling his estate.

Miscellaneous items include news clippings, scrapbooks, photographs and broadsides. Also, diaries, 1863-1865, of Samuel Thomas McCullough of 1st Md. Infantry. [Catalogued separately as Accession 2907].

The collection also includes a typed transcript entitled "Running the line from the head of the Rappahannock to the head of the Potomac" of the 1746 diary of Thomas Lewis concerning the establishment of the Fairfax line. There is a note by Hotchkiss signed an dated Oct. 1889 that states the transcription was "copied and verified from original."

In addition, the collection includes a letter from William Cabell Rives, 1883 April 27, to Hotchkiss discussing Thomas Walker's journal; there is also a document [in Rives' hand?] summarizing Walker's journal from March 16 though July 12, 1750. There is also a typescript of a speech by Col. Stoddard Johnston on Walker's journal read before the Filson Club November 3, 1893.

Correspondents include: Edward W. Clark, John Esten Cooke, Azel Ford, Stonewall Jackson, Bradley Tyler Johnson, George Washington Custis Lee, Robert E. Lee, John C. Maben, E.C. Machen, Hunter Holmes McGuire, M. Erskine Miller, Joseph T. Richards, William Cabell Rives, and Alexander Hugh Holmes Stuart.
