Abstract:

The papers include accounts, court documents, and personal bonds of Francis Willis, Gloucester County, Va.; slaves bills of sale, 1829-1854, chiefly from Wilkes County, Ga.; tax records, 1849-1860, with memorandum book kept by F.M. Stribling, Wilkes County, Ga., with accompanying circular letters from the Comptroller General's Office, Ga.; diary, 1821-1825, kept by a student at Winden Hill, Ga.; and student notes, 1860, kept by Edward Willis while attending West Point Military Academy.

The collection also contains orders issued by various officers in the Confederate States Army, 1861-1864, primarily marching orders for units in the Department of Northern Virginia, also some death notices, orders for medical treatment and disability, induction notices, passes for furloughs, and parole papers.

There are also muster rolls, pay rolls, and morning reports for Captain John Wingfield's company, and Captain G.G. Norman's company, both Georgia light artillery, originally militia home guards from Wilkes County, Ga.

Included with the collection is a pamphlet of Rules and Regulations of the Wilkes Guard (Ga.), a history, 1892, of the Irvin Artillery (Wilkes County, Ga.), with minutes, memorials, and reunion notices.

The collection contains a letter, 1863 May 18, W.N. Pendleton to Robert E. Lee; a letter, 1862 April 18, to Edward Johnson; a letter, 1861 February 13, from J.P. Benjamin; a letter, n.d., R. Toombs to Francis T. Willis.
