|Abstract:||The collection consists of the papers of Nathan Atkinson Brown and the Brown family from 1850-1936. The bulk of the collection contains Civil War correspondence between Brown and his wife Louisa Nicholes Brown. The letters do not discuss battles but focus on the stress the Civil War placed on planters in southeast Georgia and information on slavery and race relations. The letters were written by Brown while on duty with the 26th Georgia Infantry Regiment, Company B at Saint Simons and Cumberland Islands to his family in Camden County, Georgia. The collection also contains ante- and post-bellum letters written by family members.|
