There are also chapters on Atkins family history, Oak Lawn plantation, and antebellum Henry County society, culture, and politics. Part Two contains transcriptions of the diaries of James Lewis Adams and includes chapters on his family, his neighbors, and Oak Lawn plantation. Only the months of January, April, June and September are transcribed. The letters, dated 1856 to 1863, are to Thomas Washington Atkins from his family, friends, and fellow soldiers. Early family letters mention health, social events,and political views, especially regarding secession. War-time letters mostly concern the health and situations of family and friends. Later war-time letters often show weariness at the loss of life and continuation of the war. The following soldiers exchanged letters with Atkins: William Parks Phillips, Samuel P. Shaw, John L. Giles, Fleming Parks, C. B. Bledsoe, Samuel D. Nutt, William C. Nutt, Lewis O. Niles, and brother-in-law Nehemiah G. Andrews. Taking place after the death of Atkins and Andrews, the correspondence from 1864 is that of Eliza Jane Atkins writing her husband, Robert M. Walker, a soldier guard duty at Andersonville Prison, as General Sherman invaded Georgia. The two original diaries of James Lewis Adams are dated January -November 1886 and include details of his health, work on Oak Lawn plantation and an earthquake on August 31, 1886.
