This collection makes available to researchers more than 20,000 manuscript items of one of the most influential southern leaders of the Civil War and post-bellum eras. As a pro-Union member of the House of Representatives until 1861, as the wartime governor of North Carolina who championed the cause of the common citizen and clashed repeatedly with the Confederate administration of Jefferson Davis, and as one of the chief architects of the Redemption era that dramatically altered the political orientation of the South, Zebulon Vance epitomized the complex social and political nature of his times. These papers, which represent virtually the entire known correspondence of Vance, constitute an invaluable primary source for the study of the Confederacy, the Reconstruction era, and the Redeemers.
