William Ancrum Papers, 1757-1789
Formerly owned by wealthy Charleston merchant William Ancrum, this volume contains both a letter book and financial accounts that reflect the financial impact of the American Revolution on this South Carolina businessman and planter.
William Tennent III (1740 - 1777), Travel Journal and Album of Collected Papers
These online collections contain not only Tennent's Journal and Album, but also a 1974 essay entitled The Back Country Commission of Drayton, Tennent, and Hart by L.L. Owens and two maps of their back country route. The journal covers Tennent's trek though the S.C. back-country, at times in the company of William Henry Drayton and Rev. Oliver Hart in an effort to persuade Loyalist Tories to join the Patriot cause. The album contains papers documenting Tennent's life as a Presbyterian minister in the Colonies of New Jersey and Connecticut, the courtship of his wife despite her mother's objections, and his 1772 arrival in Charleston, S.C., to serve the Independent or Congregational Church among other topics.
