BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL NOTE

Kate A. Garland was a member of a slaveholding family in Virginia. She spent several months in Alabama during the Civil War.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The diary, 1860-1868, consists chiefly of descriptions of social life in her home state of Virginia and in Alabama, where she visited for several months during the Civil War. Individuals mentioned in the diary include Captain Stewart, Sam A. Garland, Ben Garland, Major Gasette, Fannie Garland, Colonel William H. Sneed, and Mrs. Sneed. The diary contains an extract of a letter by Captain Stewart, a tribute to a family slave, an essay on Edgar Allen Poe, and miscellaneous quotations. It also contains information concerning the books read at school, and a daily account of her school routine at the Richmond Institute.

Correspondence consists chiefly of letters (1865-1866) to and from John Holt Gill, one in which she refuses his proposal of marriage (April 4, 1866). The collection also includes newspaper clippings from the Virginia papers, the Richmond Times and the Petersburg Daily Index, and two manuscript editorial articles written for a reading club publication entitled "Garland."

Bound, typewritten copies of diary and papers are available.
