    Description

    [Civil War Missouri]. William Haydon Group of Documents, including a journal, a Confederate discharge from the Army of Missouri, manuscript pages, business papers, letters (two war-dated), court documents, and an 1859 pilot's certificate. The leather-bound journal reads on the front endpaper, "Memoranda of the Bends, Places, Landings, &c. on Mississippi River Between St. Louis & New Orleans. W. W. Haydon." The journal lists just what it says, even identifying in many cases on which side of the river the landings were. Most pages are empty. The documents and letters exhibit expected wear and soiling. The tip of the journal flap has broken off. From the Donald P. Dow Collection.
