The Resource The Draper Manuscripts
- The Draper Manuscripts
- Manuscripts collected by Lyman C. Draper (1815-1891) covering the history of the trans-Allegheny West, a region covering the western areas of the Carolinas and Virginia, parts of Georgia and Alabama, the entire Ohio Valley and sections of the Mississippi River Valley, and concentrated on frontier conflicts from the 1740's, the American Revolution, through the War of 1812. The material traces the contributions of early American historical figures through reminiscences, correspondence, maps, genealogies, photographs, and private papers.
