Series II: Addenda

 Series — Box: 1

Scope and Contents

From the Collection: The collection consists of a revised manuscript of The Case of the South Against the Encyclopaedia Britannica and other Maligners and contains approximately 140 loose sheets of various sizes, consisting of printed material pasted on with handwritten notations and revisions. Written as a critical response to the Encyclopaedia's depiction and belittlement of the South, the material was first published as articles in The Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser in January 1891. Shortly thereafter, the articles were brought out in pamphlet form as "The Britannnica Answered and the South Vindicated". The revised manuscript was the result of the decision to issue another edition.

The new edition was to include the original Advertiser articles with additional material incorporated, other articles by the writer, and other material "of a historical character worthy of note and preservation" (news articles, reprtints of speeches with manuscript notationsand more).
