Abstract:

Comprised of correspondence, a Civil War diary, a few official military records and miscellany, the material relates to the career of David Lewis Thornton.

The correspondence is primarily that from Thornton's law office, and concerns clients, court cases, the judicial process and state politics. Among the correspondents are: Joseph Clay Stiles (J.C.S.) Blackburn, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives; James Hilary Mulligan, a Kentucky lawyer, politician, and judge; James Kennedy Patterson, who served as President of what is now the University of Kentucky; and Caleb Powers, a Kentucky public official and member of the U.S. House of Representatives(1911-1919). Several letters from Thornton's nephew, Thomas L. Edwards, written while Edwards was stationed with the United States Army in the Philippines during the Spanish American War are also present.

Civil War materials include a diary (1864-1865) kept by Mulligan, which contains abbreviated entries concerning troop movements, a few official orders, a roster of the original members of Company A, 5th Kentucky Cavalry, and some Confederate money. Miscellaneous items, including several pamphlets, are also present.
