The collection contains one Civil War letter (ALS) from Union General Lewis Wallace to Governor Robinson of Kentucky, Aug.
22, 1862, re raising 4,000-5,000 mounted Home Guards, which he sees as the quickest way of getting a proper force into the
field. [Lew] Wallace is better known as the author of Ben Hur and the collection also includes two clippings, 1904-1905, re the writing of that work.
