The long-time University of Chattanooga librarian (1934-62) and professor was best known for having authored/edited popular Civil War books with James W. Livingood such as "A Different Valor: The Story of General Joseph W. Johnston, C.S.A." (1956) and "The Haskell Memoirs: The Personal Narrative of a Confederate Officer" (1960). TLS, 2pp, 6" X 7", Lookout Mountain, TN, 1973 September 14. Addressed to noted Lincoln/Civil War scholar ARNOLD F. GATES (1914-93). Near fine. Chatty note to a fellow Civil War researcher explaining his tardiness in receiving mail. Bit of Civil War content: "In 1864 the Federal Army developed a practice still carried of having traveling theatrical troupes, baseball teams and other groups of entertainers appear before the troops in the field. Unfortunately, March 1864 is a period when Chattanooga newspaper files are scant, so I can't check to see if those companies played here, as well as Nashville, but the state library probably has a better file of the Nashville papers." Signed in full in black ballpoint. With original envelope. N° de ref. de la librería 28375
