OLIVER CASWELL KING AND KATHERINE REBECCA RUTLEDGE KING PAPERS, 1856-1893

Documents include personal correspondence, political essays, history themes, unpublished editorials, original poetry, addressed envelopes, a greeting card, and a memorial death card. A number of postal covers bear Confederate States of America postage stamps. It was not possible to match all the empty envelopes to their original contents. These papers provide social, political, and domestic context for historians researching period courtship practices, college experiences, Civil War camp life, and the wartime home front.
