The Lee Family Digital Archive is the largest online source for primary source materials concerning the Lee family of Virginia. It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online. We are always looking for new letters, diaries, and books to add to our website. Do you have a rare item that you would like to donate or share with us? If so, please contact our curator, Colin Woodward, about how you can contribute to this historic project.




I return the paper containing Col. Hammond’s account of the battle of Eutaw. He does not reside in Missouri; but has returned to Georgia or S. Carolina.

Messrs Scott or Benton may probably be able to answer your inquiry more satisfactorily than I can—having only known Col. Hammond as a public man, but very little as a private one, in Missouri

Very respectfully

David Barton
