1 Title:   Allen C. Jordan family papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Jordan, Allen C., -1865  
  Dates:   1837-1886  
The collection consists of letters written during the Civil War by Allen C. Jordan, his brother Thomas W. Jordan, and several other family members. Allen Jordan's regiment moved through Virginia (Gordonsville, Culpeper, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania Courthouse, Winchester) and Tennessee (Chattanooga, Greenville). His letters describe battles, the food and clothing he needs from home, and his desire to see his family again. A final letter (August 19, 1864) to his parents from their nephew Floyd Jordan tells them of a battle at Front Royal (VA) and the names of the men captured, including Allen and Thomas Jordan. Both were sent to Elmira Prison (NY) where they died in 1865. Also included are several financial papers of the Jordan family and two poems/verses written by Hattie Barton.
