American Indian file( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The American Indian File is an artificially assembled collection which includes miscellaneous pieces and five smaller groups of papers concerning Indians in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The documents are primarily concerned with the transfer of land from Indians to whites and include deeds, indentures, treaties, proclamations and mortgages. Nearly all the papers are dated from 1634 to 1815, with a very few pieces from the late 19th and the 20th centuries. Also included is information on military and political affairs, negotiations and Indian ethnology, primarily between 1780 to 1850. Tribes belonging to the Iroquoian language family, including the Cherokees and Senecas, are most fully represented, but tribes in the Algonquian family, especially in the Great Lakes region are also represented (Ottawa and Saginaw Chippewa)

Pierce Mason Butler papers by Pierce Mason Butler( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Letter, 7 Jan. 1835, Columbia, S.C., Pierce M. Butler, to William Campbell Preston, re resignation of postmastership and offering several possible replacements; letter, 17 July 1840 (Columbia, S.C.) to General James Jones in Aiken, S.C., re Butler's somewhat cryptic response to Jones' informative letter of 15 July 1840, which Butler reports "places the matter in an entirely different light to what I had ever heard," and he is convinced that "some active & decided mover in the matter" is all that is wanting. He assures Jones that he will be "instrumental in any way in meeting your kind & generous suggestions" and that he will be "glad to aid any plan that shall settle a matter." Butler concludes his letter by noting that "Young Brooks" had been sent to him and that he "must take care of him" even though he is "not his friend-direct." commission as Colonel of the Palmetto Regiment, 29 June 1846; affidavit, c. 1845, re property owned and indebtedness, including character appraisal of slaves; list and description, 1 July 1846, of African-American slaves; printed orders, 22 and 23 Nov. 1846, assembling S.C. troops to serve in the Mexican War
F.W. Pickens papers by F. W Pickens( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The letter of 27 June 1861, from Governor Pickens, to Confederate president Jefferson Davis, discussing providing supplies to Confederate military units from South Carolina, and requests that Davis asist in arming "a full rifle regt." lately raised by Colonel James L. Orr. Pickens argued that there was "no portion of the Southern states from which a finer race of men could be selected for the war," and that this unit was uniquely qualified for immediate service as "they came principally from the mountain districts of our state where they can be safely spared." In order to make the unit ready for service, though, they needed arms. Pickens informed that he "would arm them with great pleasure if I had the arms," but having "equipped seven full regts now in Va., and being compelled to keep three full regts in & about Charleston fully armed," he found it "impossible to supply any more." As a solution, Orr proposed to "have all the accoutrements & equipment necessary, made in his own region of the country" through Confederate bonds, and could also get "several hundred rifles that have been heretofore given out to companies... in exchange for guns intended for drill but not for real service." [Orr's regiment, eventually known as the First Regiment, South Carolina Rifles was organized in July 1861. It served on the South Carolina coast until April 1862 when it was transferred to Virginia where it would serve for the remainder of the Civil War.]
