Scope and Content Note

Collection of correspondence primarily between various members of the Longstreet family and assorted individuals; collection also includes various books and photographs.

Of particular note are the materials related to A.B. Longstreet and two 1892 letters from L.Q.C. Lamar to his niece Linda during his tenure on the U.S. Supreme Court as well as some clippings on the statesman; Lamar was the son-in-law of Augustus Baldwin Longstreet. Also includes three letters written to Thomas N. Wendel between October 1862-March 1863 and an 1863 deed for slaves as well as an unsigned deed for six slaves from Thomas N. Wendel to his daughter, Harriet M. Longstreet. The letters from Baugh Kennedy (October 31, 1862) and J.B. Jennings (November 21, 1862) discuss business transactions. The W.C. Taylor letter (March 4, 1863) deals with various citizens of Lafayette County taking an oath of loyalty to the United States during the Federal occupation.
