1 COLONEL ANDREW C. COWLES et al 1860s - 1900s LARGE ARCHIVE OF HANDWRITTEN LETTERS TO AND FROM THE NOTED NORTH CAROLINA CONGRESSMAN, SENATOR AND HERO OF THE CONFEDERATE ARMY AND HIS FAMILY
HAMPTONVILLE NORTH CAROLINA NC 1860 Very Good+ 
On offer is a wonderful original archive of 40 handwritten letters and 8 items of ephemera including a poem, receipt, report card etc., some from, many to Confederate Colonel Andrew C. Cowles of North Carolina and his family. Cowles [b1833 - d.1881] was from Hamptonville, North Carolina. He was a member of the North Carolina House of Representatives from 1860-64 and a State Senator from 1865-66 and 1870-74. During the Civil War Cowles commanded the 18th Brigade of the 75th Regiment of North Carolina Militia at Hamptonville. He was given orders to purchase "rifles & double barrel shotguns" for the "detail militia" and to round up any deserters in his area. As a businessman, Cowles ran a successful whiskey distillery. In addition to the nine [9] letters written by Andrew Cowles there are a number written to and from his wife, Margaret "Maggie" Cowles [nee Reynolds]. Other names appearing in the letters include: Alice M. Tate, Mary Martin, Hugh Reynolds, A. R. Simonton, and James L. Mills. Most letters still have their original envelopes and stamps and date from the 1860's to the early 1900's with the majority dating from 1860 to 1880's. Various locales mentioned include: Statesville, Asheville, Charlotte, Hamptonville, Dellaplane, Andrew's Mill, Wilksboro, Delphos (Kansas), and Philadelphia. The letters contain intimate personal content and social commentary including: loss of children college death, illness, butchering hogs, Quaker church, wagon problems and making wagon wheels, poor roads, the railroad, repairing a still, crime, etc. Most of the items are in good condition, but one letter by Andrew has split, some others have small tears or breaks and a couple are slightly chewed in margin, some toning, minor staining, darkness of ink (some pencil) varies. Very nice archive.
