Processing Information

Minimally processed to the collection level. Until August 2011 this collection was included in accession 1974.258 with another item: a scrapbook of Confederate songs purchased at the Sanitary Fair by Brevoort. Due to the different provenance, the accession was split. 1974.258a (the Brevoort purchase) was moved to the Collection of Brooklyn, N.Y., Civil War relief associations records, ephemera and other material (ARC.245). This collection was rehoused and the finding aid revised by Dee Bowers in 2023.
