Skidaway Plantation is located near Savannah, in Chatham County. It is currently very exclusive, and in the 19th century, it was also for the very affluent. Skidaway Plantation had long been run by elite whites with the labor of slaves, as far back as the colonial era. The plantation has switched hands numerous times in its existence. During the Civil War, E.G Alden and James S. Newell managed Skidaway Plantation, leaving ledgers behind.
The collection consists of two manuscript ledgers, 1866-1867, kept by E. G. Alden and James S. Newell, managers of Skidaway Plantation, Chatham County, Georgia.
