This collection consists of drafts of two of McDowell's works: the novel TIDEWATER SPRIG (61M262) and CITY OF CONFLICT, a history of Louisville, Ky. during the Civil War (63M5). The novel is based on family stories about pioneer saltmakers in Kentucky. CITY OF CONFLICT outlines the social, political, military, and economic effects of the war, as well as chronicling day-to-day events. Both drafts are typescripts with emendations.
