Excerpt from A Calendar of Confederate Papers: With a Bibliography of Some Confederate Publications, Preliminary Report of the Southern Historical Manuscripts Prepared Under the Direction of the Confederate Memorial Literary Society

Inasmuch as the present volume marks the beginning of a new venture in the collection of source material relating to the War between the States, it is proper that the nature, need and scope of the undertaking should be stated. For some years students of Confederate history have felt the need of systematic and thorough co - operation in the collection of sources for several reasons. In the first place, in consequence of the death of many participants in the war, numerous collections of papers have fallen into the hands of persons unconscious of their value and unable properly to preserve them. For instance, virtually the entire cor respondence of a prominent Confederate general was condemned to the waste-heap by his heirs, who did not suspect the character of some of the manuscripts. Fortunately, these were rescued and have since been properly repaired and examined; but instances of this character are not infrequent. Other manuscripts have suf fered a fate hardly less disastrous, being left to molder in garrets or to rot in cellars, until they have become practically illegible, and are useless to the historical student.

Furthermore, the private papers of leaders of the Confederacy are scattered throughout the South in such a manner as to make them virtually inaccessible to the average student. The investi gator who wishes to collect material regarding Jefferson Davis, for example, will find his letters in at least a dozen libraries and archives, not to mention the fact that numerous important papers are in unknown private hands.
