Abstract:

The papers of Lawrence O'Bryan Branch, concern his congressional career and describe the political and social scene in Washington, D.C., including accounts of Preston S. Brooks' attack on Charles Sumner, the United States' plan to acquire Cuba, James Buchanan's visit to North Carolina, the election of 1860, the U.S. Treasury Department, and a dispute with Galusha A. Grow.

The papers contain an 1840 letter, from Felix Grundy regarding U.S. fiscal policy, abolition, and other political matters; and an 1843 letter from David Levy Yulee regarding John C. Calhoun and Southern politics.

Family papers including correspondence with his wife, Nancy "Nannie" Haywood (Blount) Branch, discuss family matters, traveling in the South, Civil War news, the battle of New Bern, N.C., and Florida social life.

Civil War papers, 1860-1862, of Branch, concern the organization of the Confederate army, anti-Confederate sentiment in North Carolina, the defense of the North Carolina coast, the battle of New Bern, N.C., and the subsequent retreat, and problems with deserters and spies.

Correspondence subsequent to joining Stonewall Jackson in Virginia describes Hanover Court House, Va., 2nd Bull Run, and the Seven Days' Battles, the Maryland Campaign, Josiah Gorgas, and Daniel Harvey Hill.

A letter, 1 January 1862, from Thomas Bragg, Richmond, Va., regards the defense of North Carolina, especially Roanoke Island and Albemarle County (N.C.), and infighting among officers under Branch's command.

A letter, 17 March 1862, from A.E. Burnside, New Bern, N.C., responds to an inquiry about Confederate casualties and prisoners in the battle of New Bern; and a letter, 20 March 1862, from Zebulon B. Vance, Kinston, N.C. reports those under Vance's command wounded and killed during the battle of New Bern.

Correspondence, 1862 with J.P. Benjamin and George W. Randolph, regards promotions and a resignation.

Correspondence, 1862, with Richard S. Ewell and Joseph E. Johnston concerns troop movements around Gordonsville, Va., and before the battle of Hanover Court House.

Three letters, June 1862, between Branch and Robert E. Lee, concern the battle of Hanover Court House, Va.; and a letter, 26 June 1862, from Stonewall Jackson concerns troop movements.
