General Thomas Welsh Family Papers
Title
History of Thomas Welsh
Description
Autobiography of Thomas Welsh that was probably written in his late teens. This history details Thomas Welsh's work and schooling from age 8 through about age 16. Several people are mentioned, including an unnamed uncle. It appears to be the start of a longer document, except that the back of the page is an unrelated document. This is the first page of a 24 page package, apparently written variously in his late teens/early twenties, and subsequently bound together, probably by Thomas Welsh himself.
Admin/Biographical History
Thomas Welsh (1824-1863) was a Lancaster County native (born and raised in Columbia), who rose from hardscrabble origins to local fame, first as a Mexican War hero, and then as a brigadier general during the Civil War. He was well known and well respected as a no nonsense officer, for his leadership and gallantry in battle, for his dedication to the service of his country, and for his concern for the welfare of his men. See MG0828 for more biographical information.

Condition Notes
Reasonably good condition, with slight discoloration and some edge deterioration. Judging by the binding, this is page 4 of the packet. The first 2 pages are missing, and p. 3 is TW-A-XX-01(a), on the backside of this. The rest of the pages are bound upside down (relative to the first 4 pages), including TW-A-XX-01(d) and TW-A-XX-01(e), which are part of the same folio sheet as TW-A-XX-01(a) and TW-A-XX-01.
