Collection Description

Historical Note

Felix Hargrett was a university alumnus (graduated in 1924) who contributed significantly to the University of Georgia. He began donating materials as early as the 1940s, but his first considerable donation came in 1951, and included a significant amount of Civil War materials. The Special Collections Library was renamed in his honor, due to his many contributions and support.

Of particular interest are the Confederate States of America (CSA) Nitre and Mining Bureau Corps records. This military unit was intended to supply the Confederacy with metals and minerals. Nitre could be mined across the South and was needed for explosives and gunpowder. The Nitre and Mining Bureau was officially formed in 1863 and continued to the war's end in 1865. Notably, Nathaniel E. Pratt, John LeConte, and Joseph LeConte all helped create maps for the Nitre and Mining Bureau. This organization significantly helped the Confederacy continue the war effort, supplying a tremendous amount of niter and saltpeter.

Scope and Content

The collection consists primarily of letters, but also includes reports, petitions, furloughs, receipts, depositions, indentures, court orders, soldier tickets, payrolls, invoices, notes, statements, land orders, and certificates. The collection documents the Colony of Georgia, slavery, the Confederacy, the Civil War, and Reconstruction. There is a large amount of material about the Nitre and Mining Bureau of the Confederacy, Georgia Home Insurance Company, and Nathaniel A. Pratt.

Organization and Arrangement

Arranged alphabetically by personal or company name, and occasionally by subject.
