Abstract:

Diaries, accounts, letters, photographs, and several chapters of a proposed book by Emma Inman Williams covering the first four volumes of diaries. The earliest diary entries (1849-1852) cover the period when Cartmell was farming with his father, Martin Cartmell (1797-1864). Beginning in 1853, the entries are more extensive and relate to farming, politics and candidates for office, cotton, slavery, railroads, agricultural meetings, state fairs, prohibition, churches (especially Presbyterian), secession, and conditions in Madison County during and after the Civil War. Diaries during the war years are filled with accounts of battles (Shiloh, Ft. Donelson, and Ft. Henry), troop movements, treatment of civilians, and destruction of property by Federal troops in West Tennessee. There is a break in the diaries from May 1867 to January 1879. Accounts are scattered throughout, with one volume (1897-1900) devoted entirely to accounts. Biographical and genealogical data for a number of families, with special reference to the Baldwin, Cartmell, and Sharp families, is included. Prominent persons mentioned in the diaries include William Brimage Bate, William Jennings Bryan, Edward Ward Carmack, Duncan Cooper, Robin Cooper, Benjamin Augustine Enloe, Nathan Bedford Forrest, James Frazier, Isham Green Harris, Howell Edmunds Jackson, Andrew Johnson, Horace Maynard, Malcolm R. Patterson, Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas C. Rye, William H. Taft, Robert Love Taylor, Thomas Battle Turley, Peter Turney, and John May Taylor.
