Brown, John William: Diary, 1852-1865; 2 rolls. John William Brown was a merchant, planter, and businessman in Camden (Oua­chita County) during the war. Born in Tennessee and educated at Louisville, Kentucky, Brown moved to Arkansas after living in Memphis, Tennessee. He tried running his own plantation in Dallas County for a while but then moved to Camden in the early 1850s. He served as a city alderman in 1857. When the war broke out, Brown remained at home and recorded his observations on his daily activities and those of his community with graphic regularity. He was an eyewitness to the Federal occupation of the town in April 1864 by troops under the command of Major General Frederick Steele, and to the subsequent return of Confederate control under sol­diers commanded by Lieutenant General E. Kirby Smith. The diary has been extensively quoted in various articles in the "Arkansas Historical Quarterly" over the past three decades but has never been published in its entirety. The first roll of microfilm is of the ori­ginal volumes; the second consists of a typed transcript. The original and typed transcription are held by the Arkansas History Com­mission (Univ. of Arkansas, Fayetteville: Manuscript Resources for the Civil War, Compiled by Kim Allen Scott, 1990).

Clift Family Papers: Tennessee State Library and Archives: Clift Family Papers, Nr. 1968.383, Location VI-F-4

Regest: The Clift Family Papers containing approximately 150 items (269 photocopies), span the years from ca. 1820 to 1968 and are composed of Civil War letters, Bible records, a deed, wills, genealogical data and correspondence, historical and biographical sket­ches, D.A.R. and Daughters of 1812 applications, and other papers. Of special interest to the historian are the letters (August 20, 1863 to October 27, 1864) of Colonel William Clift, 7th Tennessee Regiment, U.S.A., his second wife, Elizabeth, and other members of the family in Kentucky. Clift’s letters, written largely from Knoxville, Knox County, Chattanooga (Hamilton County), and Soddy (Hamilton County), Tennessee, reflect his movement and conditions in Kentucky, his imprisonment in Atlanta, and his activities in east Tennessee, where he carried messages for the Federals through Confederate lines. There are two letters reassuring Mrs. Clift of her husband’s safety, one (March 20, 1864) written by Major General George H. Thomas, and another (September 24, 1864) written by a member of his staff. One letter (undated) from Clift’s brother-in-law tells of the excitement in Kentucky regarding the Negro question, mentioning that Colonel Frank L. Wolford has denounced the President as a traitor and that Kentucky Governor Thomas E. Bramlett did not reply to the charge. During March and April 1864, Colonel Clift wrote to his wife from Soddy, Tennessee, about the possibility of her joining him, but cautioned her that there were robbers everywhere. Clift’s views toward slavery are revealed in his statements that he favored the proposal to emancipate the slaves and to leave them in the states where they “respectively belong and let them do the labor in freedom that they have done in slavery.” The Clift family papers, including a sketch concerning how the Ci­vil War in east Tennessee affected the Clift family, center around Hamilton County, Tennessee, while the McDonald and some of the other families followed the familiar migration pattern from southwest Virginia through east Tennessee, and on to Texas. Other family lines settled in Maryland, North Carolina, and Kentucky. Since the families in this collection are so closely related, the researcher should consult folders for any families into which their lines married (aus: http://www.tn.gov/tsla/history/ manuscripts/ findingaids/68-383.pdf).

Cook, John H. (Pvt; Co. D, 6th Wisconsin Infantry): „Cook's Time in the Army.“ Unpublished manuscript. Cook Papers, Madison, Wis., State Historical Society of Wisconsin. Anm.: Cook's 12-page war memoir is a curious document. There are two copies. The first was written 30 30, 1865, in Washington. D.C., and the second, a copy, August 3, 1865 at Hartford, Wisconsin. Both are identical. For a soldier who served in three separate outfits and took part in a score of battles, the „memoir“ is unusual in that it is almost a complete litany by Cook citing grievances against the officers of the various regiments (vgl. Herdegen/Beaudot: In the Bloody Railroad Cut, a.a.O., S. 83n12)

Davis, Jefferson: Papers, 1849-1986; 6 linear feet. Correspondence, literary productions, scrapbooks, printed materials, and other documents pertaining to Jeff Davis (1862-1913), governor of Arkansas from 1901 to 1907 and United States senator from 1907 to 1913. Davis was born at Rocky Comfort to a former Confederate army chaplain who named him for the Southern president. Civil War related materials can be found in both the personal and the political papers in the Davis collection. In the family correspondence are twelve letters written between 1859 and 1862 by relatives of Davis's wife, Ina McKenzie Thatch Davis. These letters were written to Ina's mother, Jane E. Norment of Pine Bluff (Jefferson County) from her brother, Wilbur F. Norment, and her future husband, Dun­can G. L. McKenzie. Wilbur was a resident of Washington, D.C., and wrote to Jane from that place on December 9, 1859, and on July 16, 1861. A third letter from Wilbur was written from Camden (Ouachita County) in 1861. Duncan McKenzie was a preacher and wrote nine letters to Jane from Little Rock (Pulaski County) between September 7, 1860, and January 11, 1862, while he was in the city attending religious conferences. Although many of Duncan's letters are personal in nature, he did describe the city's mood du­ring the secession convention of 1861. Among the political papers in the Jeff Davis collection are case files concerning Arkansas resi­dents who asked for the senator's assistance in reparation claims against the Federal government for confiscated and destroyed pro­perty during the Civil War.

He served in various regiments during the war, including the 29th Virgi­nia Infantry Regiment, the 31st Virginia Infantry Regiment, and the 62nd Virginia Mounted Infantry Regiment. He also served, bet­ween September 1862 and January 1863 as an assistant surgeon at Montgomery White Sulphur Springs Hospital. The papers consist of letters from White to his wife in Shawsville, written mostly while encamped along the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in 1863 and 1864. He describes the losses to his regiment suffered during the Battle of Gettysburg (July 1863), the Battles of New Market and Spotsylvania (May 1864), and the Battle of Winchester (September 1864).
