Association of Confederate Soldiers Cash Book

 Collection
Identifier: MS-1349

This notebook, from Foster and Webb, was used as the Financial Secretary's Cash Book for Bivouac No 2 of the Association of Confederate Soldiers, T. D. [Tennessee Division]. Its entries consist primarily of lists of members with records of their dues payments, with occasional notes such as transferred, suspended, exempt, life member, etc. There are several runs of these lists, separated by many blank pages. There is also a list for subscriptions to furnish soldiers' room and home. Later lists include the deaths of the members, often with dates, and page 134 has a list of dead comrades.

Tucked into the pages are two blank applications for a cross of honor from the Daughters of the Confederacy and the minutes of a meeting on May 27, 1916. At that meeting, C. S. Daniel was chair, and sixteen members were listed as in attendance.
