9 Title:   Charles Colcock Jones, Jr. remarks on Robert E. Lee  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Jones, Charles C. (Charles Colcock), 1831-1893  
  Dates:   1876  
  Contents:  
The collection consists of one bound manuscript compiled by Charles Colcock Jones, Jr. entitled "Letter of General Robert E. Lee tendering to the President of the Confederate States his resignation of the command of the Army of Northern Virginia: with explanatory remarks by Charles C. Jones, Jr." Thus, the main body of the manuscript is Jones' transcription of Lee's famous letter. More importantly, however, the volume has tipped in six prints of Lee, six of Jefferson Davis, two of General George Meade, and one each of Generals P.G.T. Beauregard, Braxton Bragg, A.P. Hill, T.J. Jackson, Joseph E. Johnston, John H. Morgan, and J.E.B. Stuart. Views included are two of the Battle of Gettysburg, the Capitol at Richmond, and two unusual views of Richmond, as well as a folding map. In addition three letters are tipped in: 1. opposite page 4. This letter from General G. E. Pickett to General Braxton Bragg, dated 26 April 1864, one page, discusses military matters preparatory to the Battle of the Crater and as such is historically important. 2. opposite page 6. Note signed by Robert E. Lee and addressed to President Davis informing him the the "Florida Brigade cannot be spared from the army." 3. opposite page 11. Note signed by Davis and dated 25 August 1863 referring to the above. Apparently both 2 and 3 are endorsements from the same original piece and separated by Jones for inclusion in this volume. The volume also has clippings of Jones' "A Piece of Secret History" (Scribner's Magazine, February 1876) and a review of this article (The Cycle, 29 January 1876).

As he moved through North Carolina and Virginia, Barfield described such topics as a prison camp; the health of himself and others; the execution of a deserter; Negro troops; the supplies of food, horses, and arms; his company's skirmishes; and other war news. He continued to be optimistic that the war would soon be over. Also in the collection are various legal documents, deeds, promissory notes, accounts, and receipts.

From a later time period are a 1918 Macon News newspaper, a 1921 Athens Banner newspaper, and a 1929 letter to Mrs. M. B. Medlock of Macon.
