3 Title:   R.W. McCormick letter  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   McCormick, Robert Warnock, 1828-1879  
  Dates:   1855 November 20  
  Contents:  
Consists of one letter written by R.W. McCormick at Oglethorpe University and sent to his friend "Rachel." McCormick writes about the inauguration of Governor Herschel V. Johnson on November 7, 1855 in Milledgeville, Georgia. He writes that many in attendance represented the "beauty and chivalry of the Empire State of the South." The letter also describes that the number of women in attendance was "so numerous that they occupied most of the seats so that the legislators were obliged to stand." At the end of the letter, McCormick also gives a detailed and unflattering description of Robert Toombs and Alexander Stephens, who were both in attendance. The author of the letter is probably Robert Warnock McCormick, who attended Oglethorpe University at this time according to Allen P. Tankersley's 1951 book College Life at Old Oglethorpe. McCormick was a pastor, who lived from 1828-1879, according to the Necrological Reports and Annual Proceedings of the Alumni Association of Princeton Theological Seminary, Volume 1 by the Princeton Theological Seminary in 1891.
