Nacogdoches (Tex.) -- History
Found in 12 Collections and/or Records:
The collection consists of McDonald's draft manuscript, including chapter notes, to HURRAH FOR TEXAS! THE DIARY OF ADOLPHUS STERNE 1838-1851, published by Texian Press in 1969. The manuscript does not include the index or bibliography printed in the published version.
This collection contains newspaper clippings, letters and other correspondence, business proposals, committee meeting minutes, brochures, maps, and photographs. Also included in the collection are a historic Bible from 1947, a community service award, an unused baby book, and photographs of former sheriff A.J. Spradley.
These papers include Civil War letters from Henry Curl to his wife, Julia, and one to her brother, Lawrence S. Taylor. The letter to Lawrence is quite long and gives an extremely detailed and interesting account of Henry's experiences in the war.
