Correspondence between Lynn and his wife, Mattie Simpson Lynn, during the Civil War. H. M. Lynn's letters describe various aspects of military life and the progress of the war, although they contain few specifics. The letters from his wife are concerned with news from the home front, the day-to-day lives of Confederate civilians, discussions of emancipation, and ruminations on the causes of the war. Also included is the text of a brief speech, apparently delivered by H. M. Lynn after the war, in which he discussed the Confederate dispositions around Kennesaw Mountain, Ga., before and during the battle there in 1864. There are also photocopies of several pages of Confederate muster rolls on which H. M. Lynn's signature appears; a photocopy of a document showing that Lynn took the oath of allegiance in 1865; several letters of indeterminate origin from the 1870s; two catechisms and a small volume of religious songs that apparently belonged to Mattie Simpson Lynn; an 1858 letter her from her brother; and an undated, handwritten biography of H. M. Lynn.
