Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of microfiched copies of lists, receipts, and expenditures relating to the South Carolina Militia, under General David Flavel Jamison (Jamieson, SIC) (1810-1864) and president of South Carolina’s Secession Convention in December 1860. The account book starts on January 1, 1861 before the Confederate States Army was officially established in late February–early March 1861, continues through the bombardment of Fort Sumter in Charleston, SC (April 1861), and up until October 1861. General Jamison’s son, David Rumph Jamison (1834-1908), was with his father during the bombardment of Fort Sumter and was a quartermaster during the American Civil War for the Confederacy and may have been the author of the South Carolina Militia Account Book.
