Tiffanie has added a new item to our Archival Treasures collection within the North Carolina Digital Collections:

C. G. Davenport – Zebulon B. Vance Letter, August 10, 1862

A letter dated August 10, 1862 from C. G. Davenport of Co. F, 11th North Carolina Regiment, which was penned at Camp Lamb, near Wilmington, and addressed to Governor-elect Zebulon Vance. The letter congratulates Vance on his election as governor of North Carolina, commenting on the large margin of his election, and recommending that a friend, Dr. Edward Warren, be appointed Surgeon General of North Carolina. This letter was written a little less than a month prior to Vance taking office as Governor.

During the war Dr. Warren held numerous appointments including Chief Medical Officer of Confederate naval forces of North Carolina, Medical Director of the Confederate Department of the Cape Fear, and in 1863 he was appointed Surgeon General of North Carolina.
