Abstract:

Correspondence and other papers re Brooks' service in the Palmetto Regiment during the Mexican War, and items re the aftermath of his altercation with U.S. Senator Charles Sumner. Includes letters of James Hopkins Adams, Whitfield Brooks, Pierce Mason Butler, James Lawrence Orr, and others.

Printed chemistry textbook, 1835, with manuscript notations, 1839 and undated, in the hand of P.S. Brooks on a flyleaf at the back of the volume. The notations, which appear to be practice drafts of financial notes, are dated 1 Nov. 1839 and labeled "Form of a 'Due Bill'" and "Form of a Note."

Affidavit, 2 May 1847, signed by Dr. James Davis at Alappa (Mexico), certifying that Brooks, Captain of Co. D. Palmetto Regiment, was "in feeble health for some time ... unable to resume the duties of his office for months to come," and advising leave of absence to restore his health.

Scrapbook, 1836-1933, re newspaper clippings chiefly re P.S. Brooks' career in the Mexican War and in Congress, his altercation with and attack on Sen. Charles Sumner and public reaction; obiturary notices and editorial tributes at the time of his death, information re descendants and genealogy; and printed broadside, 1857, "Arrangements for the Reception of the Remains of Hon. Preston S. Brooks."

Bound volume, ca. 1873 and undated, written in hand of Martha Means Brooks (Mrs. Preston Brooks), re her memories of the Sumner-Brooks affair [a mostly complete transcription of this account published, 5 Mar. 1986, in the Edgefield Advertiser newspaper].

Two letters, 6 and 15 Oct. 1904, from Bishop Ellison Capers to Brooks' daughter, Rosa (Mrs. Vardry E. McBee), agreeing to perform the marriage of her daughter and recalling "the drive ... I took from 96 out to your house when I married you."

[Accession #8226 also included a silver goblet (now held by McKissick Museum) presented to show support following the Brooks-Sumner affair in 1856. Goblet bears engraved inscriptions on two of its six gothic panels: "From the neighbors and admirers of Hon. Preston S. Brooks, this testimonial is presented, as a full endorsement of his gallant conduct on May 22nd 1856,"and "'Ninety Six' repeats 'By his deeds ye shall know him.'" The goblet bears no hallmark but appears to be the work of a New York or Philadelphia silversmith.].
