Scope and Contents: The collection consists primarily of letters (1862-1865) from Theodore A. Honour to his wife "Beckie" during his service in the Confederate Army. Honour believed the letters were valuable for their picture of Confederate military and civilian life. The letters also reflect the culture and values of a nineteenth century Charleston gentleman, Honour's view of the war, and of the letter as a literary form. Several letters express his intention to preserve the letters and bind them with preface and memoirs "for the future reading and for the children."
