titleWilliam Jackson Palmer letters, 1859-1903 (bulk 1859-1867).
repositoryYale University Library
descriptionThirty-one ALS, and a fragment of an ALS, 1859-1867, and thirty-four telegrams, 1863-1865, to his friend, Charles B. Lamborn; five ALS to Robert Henry Lamborn, Charles’s brother, 1862-1863; and eleven ALS and one telegram to Emma Taylor Lamborn, Charles’s wife, 1864-1903. Early letters to Charles B. Lamborn concern their friendship, briefly discuss Palmer’s work with the Pennsylvania Railroad, and describe the formation of the Anderson Cavalry Troop. Palmer was taken prisoner following the Battle of Antietam; later letters to Charles B. Lamborn discuss Palmer’s return to Tennessee after being released, recruitment of the 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry, and subsequent operations of the Regiment in Tennessee.

Charles B. Lamborn joined the Anderson Cavalry Troop as Lieutenant Colonel in 1863. Telegrams sent to him by Palmer concern ordnance, recruiting, training, and other army business. Letters to Charles B. and Robert Henry Lamborn discuss campaigns, including operations in Tennessee, description of the Shiloh battlefield, G. T. Beauregard’s retreat from Corinth, and Palmer’s experiences in assisting in the capture of Jefferson Davis. Letters to Emma Taylor Lamborn concern their friendship and family news, including the death of Charles B. Lamborn in 1903, and also briefly discuss Palmer’s work with Kansas Pacific Railway surveys.

Also present are three letters to Robert Henry Lamborn, 1862, from William C. Kelley, [C. F.?] Palmer, and F. H. Jackson, William Jackson Palmer’s uncle. These letters were written during Palmer’s captivity by the Confederate Army and discuss prospects for his return. A few papers pertaining to the Anderson Cavalry Troop are present: a copy of a letter introducing Palmer, written by an unidentified writer to an unidentified recipient, with a copy of Palmer’s plan for creation of the Anderson Cavalry Troop appended, 1861; an incomplete letter written by an unidentified writer, to "Morton," Sep 23, 1862, describing operations by Palmer and the Anderson Cavalry Troop at Hagerstown, Maryland; an order appointing Charles B. Lamborn as Lieutenant Colonel, 1863; a list of officers, 1863; two general orders issued by Palmer, 1864; and an order to Captain Charles H. Irwin, with an ALS from him to Palmer, 1864.
