This collection is a letter from Jeremiah Hall to his brother, dated October 20, 1863, from Collierville, Tennesee. The letter refers to one of the skirmishes that took place as Sherman's troops were moving east toward Chattanooga in late 1863. Hall's unit was evidently one of those guarding the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, a target of frequent Confederate raids. Collierville was the site of four minor battles during late 1863; the one that Hall describes was probably that caused by Confederate Brigadier General James Chalmer's raid of mid-October 1863.
Two copies of Hall's "The History of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Alabama Prior to 1826" and a notebook detailing his sermons and revival participation from September 1886 through May 1887; a large portion of the notebook contains Myra Hall's writings
