About this collection

The bulk of the collection is correspondence between John Augustine Washington III's wife, mother, and daughter, and himself right up until his death in September 1861 while fighting in the Civil War. The letters deal with family matters and running Mount Vernon in the 19th century leading up to and a little after the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association bought the property in 1860.
