The A. A. Bruner Journal consists of one file folder that contains a photocopy of Bruner’s 1852 journal of his planned travel from Greene County, Tennessee, to the California goldfields. The journal documents Bruner’s travels through North and South Carolina, where he caught a ship at Charleston and sailed to Cuba. Bruner describes his stay in Cuba before sailing on through the Atlantic Ocean bound for California. The journal ends abruptly shortly after leaving Cuba and does not follow Bruner’s journey on to California. Two pages in the back of the journal record names, birth, and death dates for members of the Bruner family.
