Abstract:

Barron corresponds with family, friends, and naval officers about cruises, naval affairs, and politics, as well as family news, and life in Norfolk, and Essex County, Virginia. Of interest are letters written during the Norfolk yellow fever epidemic of 1855.

A large group of Civil War correspondence deals with the safety of U.S. vessels at Pensacola in 1861, the establishment of the Confederate Navy, the defense of the Outer Banks of North Carolina, his capture at Hatteras and eleven months imprisonment in Boston.

After his exchange Barron corresponds about the reorganization of the Confederate Navy, the defense of the Mississippi, Tennessee, and Cumberland rivers with iron-clad gunboats, and his mission abroad to order iron-clads and outfit other vessels for the Confederacy.

Postwar letters deal almost entirely with family news. The collection also includes some genealogy, photographs, clippings, a sectional sketch of a gunboat and some school-girl essays.

Among the correspondents are Samuel Francis DuPont, David Glasgow Farragut, Joseph Eggleston Johnston, Catesby Ap Roger Jones, Stephen Russell Mallory, George Edward Pickett, John Slidell, Francis Henry Smith, John Tyler, Gideon Welles, William Conway Whittle, and Henry Alexander Wise.
