Collection Overview

Biography / History
The Facklers were from Danville, Kentucky, and Huntsville, Alabama.
Scope and Content
Originals are in the hands of Mrs. Calvin M. Fackler, Danville, Ky. These are typescripts and photostats of papers of the Fackler family of Danville, Ky. Most of the letters were written during the Civil War by C. W. Fackler, a Confederate soldier, to his family. Several of these letters were written during his confinement as a prisoner of war at Camp Morton, near Indianapolis, Indiana. There are also copies of seven letters sent by author Amelia E. Barr to Calvin M. Fackler around 1916. These letters discuss their friendship, her writing career, and current events, particularly World War I. The photographs show areas in Clinton, Cumberland, and Nelson counties. Among the subjects are the Burkesville ferry and the Clinton county courthouse in Albany.
