Abstract:

The collection contains two letters, 1861, Walter Creigh Preston, University of Virginia, to Uncle John M. Preston, Sr. discussing the atmosphere at the University just prior to the Civil War, and mentioning the Southern Guard, Sons of Liberty and a company raised by Albert Taylor Bledsoe.

In addition an 1862 letter from W.L. Lewison, Charlottesville jail, requests financial assistance and clothing; and an 1828 letter from Edward L. Watson, Charlottesville, to Ambrose L. White, Tennessee, discusses the convention of 1828 to consider internal improvements and asks about western prospects.

In addition there is a carte-de-visite, ca. 1867, of Henry A. Wise, a photograph, ca. 1890, of the West End Railway Station, Falls Church, Va., and a photograph, 1909, of the Richmond Howitzer's Alexandria homecoming.
