Georgia Archive traversing the years 1798-1871. Included are twenty-six documents: land indentures (Wilkes, Hart, Banks, Washington County), land grants (Screven County), Civil War-era voting results tally sheet, hand- drawn survey maps, signatures of a Revolutionary War-era militia officer, Confederate soldiers, officers, and Georgia congressmen, marriage license (Sumter, Hall County), legal documents (Richmond County), court documents (Richmond County), land sale documents (Fannin County), business letters (Savannah, Georgia), estate settlement document mentioning slaves (Butts County), military equipment lists (Camden County).

    Also included are several letters, such as a John M. Berrien autograph letter signed (Berrien had served as President Andrew Jackson's attorney general) and other personal letters (Murray and Irwin County residents writing about local elections, religion, and farm life: "I want to see you all very Bad but my business is arranged so that I can't come yet for I have a very large crop on hand and it is powerful likely so far but I expect if I have good luck by hard driving that I can get through ploughing this coming week and then I have got to build a house for I have not built a house since you were here except a crib and a smoke house.") Some foxing, soiling, and weakness and separation at folds. In all, an intriguing archive offering insight into nineteenth century Georgia life.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
