3 Title:   Barfield family collection  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Barfield, Richard Lee, 1836-1912  
  Dates:   1822-1929  
  Contents:  
The major portion of the Barfield Family Collection is three letterbooks filled with the letters of R. Lee Barfield and written while he was a Confederate soldier in the Civil War. The letters were all written to his wife Maggie in Henderson, Georgia. Many of the letters are in poor condition, but a typescript is included of the legible letters. 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. Many of these are from the area of Bibb county, Georgia, and the name of Tillmon Barnett is often mentioned. The Southern Side, a book about Andersonville prison, is included. 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.
