General Thomas Welsh Family Papers
Description
Handwritten draft of a letter from Thomas Welsh to James Buchanan or to William L. Marcy requesting instructions on how to proceed following his appointment as 2nd Lieutenant; the same draft document also contains remarks (prepared for some meeting) advocating a vigorous prosecution of the war; the document ends with a poem evidently written by Welsh summarizing his feelings about going back into war, a wounded veteran ready for further sacrifice to secure an honorable and lasting peace.
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.

Description
Poems and notes by Thomas Welsh. This page consists of 1) Two stanzas from the anonymous short poem “Music” included at the beginning of the document use the metaphor of music to describe the grandeur of sounds found throughout nature (waterfalls, wind, rain, streams, etc.). The 2 additional lines suggest that Welsh may have been trying to add to the poem. 2) 9 lines of bold script identifying Thomas Welsh at Mrs. Philips Missouri Hotel in Little Rock, July 30, 1845; and also referencing Captain Alexander at Fort Smith; Daniel Boone Logan, son of Col. Logan, Creole Agent; Charles Adamson of Little Rock; Mr. Hicks printer; the Steamboat Frankland with Kendall as Master, Wade as Clerk, and Dallow as Bar Keeper. These appear to be notes made by Welsh to remember names and details.
