Collection Description

Historical Note

Howell Cobb was born on September 17, 1815, the son of Sarah Rootes and John Addison Cobb. His younger brother, T.R.R. Cobb, was born several years later in 1823. About 1819, the Cobb family moved to Athens, Georgia, where Howell attended the University of Georgia and graduated in 1834. He married within a year to Mary Ann Lamar. With some experience, he became a lawyer in 1836. He and Mary Ann would have twelve children, only six of whom would survive to adulthood.

Cobb excelled in both law and politics, though the latter was his real passion. He served in the United States House of Representatives from 1843 to 1851 and then again in 1855 to 1857. He was the Speaker of the House from 1849 to 1851. He was the governor of Georgia from 1851 to 1853. He served under President Buchanan as the Secretary of Treasury from 1857 to 1860. When Georgia seceded in 1861, he also left, and served as the president of the Provisional Confederate Congress from 1861 to 1862.

Notably, Cobb strove to secure the passage of the Compromise of 1850 and often led committees and coalitions to keep the nation together. Due to this, however, he garnered hostility with other Southerners and had to restore his reputation within the Democratic Party.

Yet by 1860, due to secession, he abandoned the Union and joined the Confederacy. He was briefly considered for the Confederate presidency, but his former politics blocked him from the position. When he concluded his provisional term, Cobb turned to the military branch of the Confederacy. He started as a colonel of the Sixteenth Georgia Infantry, but by the end of the war, he would become a major general.

Like almost all other military leaders, Cobb was eventually forced to surrender in 1865 and waited for the next few years for a pardon. When he finally received one, he spoke out against the politics of the Radical Republicans. He died on vacation in 1868 in New York.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of papers of Howell Cobb and the Cobb family from 1793 to 1932. The bulk of the collection is correspondence, mostly addressed to Howell Cobb, dating from 1839 to 1868. There is a large amount of correspondence between Howell Cobb, his wife Mary Ann Lamar, and her brother John B. Lamar. The letters discuss politics in both Georgia and the United States, the Confederate States of America including its formation and administration, and information on Cobb's business interests, especially his plantations. After Cobb's death in 1868, the remainder of the correspondence is between other family members including John A. Cobb, Howell Cobb, Jr., Alexander Erwin, and Mary Erwin discussing family and social news, business interests, and legal cases. While the correspondence primarily documents the Cobb, Lamar, Erwin, and Barrow faimilies, there is also a large amount of correspondence from the Jackson, Hull, Rootes, Lumpkin, King, Pope, Rutherford, Prince, and Nisbet families.

The earliest material includes indentures and land grants (1793-1829) relating to Zachariah Lamar's business interests.

The clippings do not focus on Howell Cobb, with the very rare exception. These seem to have been donated by family but are very general in nature. The journals and diaries are from family members and friends.

Organization and Arrangement

The collection is organized into eight series: Howell Cobb, Lamar family, Cobb family, Erwin family, Barrow family, other correspondence, and documents.

1. Howell Cobb

This series consists of correspondence to and from Howell Cobb, including both outgoing and incoming letters with members of the family, and financial material. Letters from overseer David G. Gibson regarding Hurricane Plantation are noted. Also noted are letters from Matthew Linam of Cherry Hill, Jefferson Co., Georgia, that discuss crops and the growing season. W. C. Daniell, a planter in Cobb's congressional district, wrote about the political situation. Included in the correpondence are letters from George S. Houston, John H. Lumpkin, Thomas W. Thomas, and Thomas D. Harris, some of which are noted in the inventory. James Gardner, publisher and editor of the Augusta's democratic newspaper the Constitutionalist, frequently wrote to Cobb. Throughout the 1851 and 1852 correspondence there is discussion of the Georgia Constitutional Union Party and Cobb's campaign for governor. Throughout the 1850s correspondence there is discussion regarding the Know Nothing Party, the Kansas-Nebraska Act, and James Buchanan's presidential nomination and election. During Cobb's service as U.S. Secretary of the Treasury (1857-1860), there is a great deal of correspondence with Philip Clayton, who served as acting secretary during Cobb's absence from Washington, D.C and later served as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury of the Confederate States.Throughout there is correspondence with Cobb's family, including his parents, siblings, and cousins. There is a large amount of correspondence between Howell Cobb and his wife Mary Ann Lamar, especially at the begining of their marriage (1835-1837) and during their first long separation (1843-1844), and his brother-in-law John B. Lamar. His mother Sarah R. Cobb and his cousin James Jackson wrote him regularly, and there is a small amount of correspondence with his father Col. John Addison Cobb. Also, Cobb corresponded often with Henry Lewis Benning.
