Biographical/Historical Information

Born 28 July 1831, Henry Thweatt Owen entered the Confederate Army as a Captain of Company C, 18th Virginia Infantry Regiment on 23 April 1861 in Burkeville, Virginia. He was arrested on 5 June 1861, but by order of court martial was restored to command on 1 July 1861. He was again placed under arrest, this time for disobeying orders in regard to some sick men in his company, on 11 September 1861, by order of Colonel R. E. Withers, his commanding officer, and was cashiered on 22 November 1861. However, his order of cashier was vacated, and he was elected Captain by his company on 26 April 1862. He was reported absent from the lines in Chesterfield County, Virginia, on 28 December 1864, by reason of his being under arrest and imprisoned in Castle Thunder. The reasons for Owen's frequent arrests remain a mystery, except for the arrest of 11 September 1861, and even in this case the matter is only partially explained in a letter of 29 March 1902 from Owen to Colonel R. E. Withers. Owen's war letters mention his arrests, but give no reasons.

Following the war, he served as a clerk in the Second Auditor's Office in Richmond and devoted his spare time to investigating the Land Office records for genealogical information, and compiled preliminary maps showing plats of land grants in Prince Edward County. His wife was named Harriet, who bore him twelve children: Elizabeth Mildred (1852-1867), Henry Clay (1853-1883), Michael Melancthon (1856-1949), Harriet Louisa (b. 1860), Jacqueline Rosa (b. 1865), William Temple (1867-1879), Herman S. (b. 1868), Benjamin Hilton (1868-1896), Sallie Marshall (b. 1871), Helen Mercer (b. 1873), Mary Eliza (Mamie) (b. 1875), and Charles Archer (1877-1879). Owen died in Richmond on 8 October 1921.

Scope and Content Information

Papers, 1822-1929, including a will (29 April 1822) and estate inventory (28 November 1825) of Ann Owen of Prince Edward County, letters, land records, military papers, lists of casualties and units at Gettysburg, a diary kept during the Civil War from 10 February to 10 July 1863, reminiscences of service during the Civil War, drafts of articles concerning the Civil War, poetry, a newspaper (Charlottesville Gazette, 15 May 1884), photographs of Henry Thweatt Owen, the papers of James Whiteside, maps, broadsides, and lists of coupons issued under Acts of 1871, 1879, and 1892 and paid into the Second Auditor's Office.

The letters, 1856-1924, comprise the bulk of the collection and concern Owen's military service, his desire for historical accuracy regarding the role of Pickett's Division in the Gettysburg campaign, postwar Virginia politics, and his career in the Second Auditor's Office. Correspondents includes James Lawson Kemper, James Longstreet, Philip W. McKinney, William Mahone, Charles Marshall, Roger A. Pryor, and Frank G. Ruffin.

The military papers, 6 November 1862 - 8 August 1864, include letters, orders, and receipts of a military nature, especially concerning Union prisoners assembled for exchange at City Point. Lists of casualties and units at Gettysburg, n.d., include estimates of Union strength, company rosters, and lists of officers killed and wounded in Pickett's Charge. Diary, 10 February - 10 July 1863, traces the movements of the 18th Virginia Infantry Regiment from Petersburg through the retreat from Gettysburg.

Reminiscences are of Owen's service during the Civil War, Pickett's division, the Battle of South Mountain, and Pickett's Charge. James Whiteside papers, 1863-1893, include a discharge from the 46th Pennsylvania Militia Regiment, survey and plat of land in Charlotte County, receipts, and accounts.

These maps are located in Map cabinet 22, drawer 1. The broadsides consist of: "To the Survivors of Pickett's Division," 15 December 1887, and "Garnett's Brigade," n.d. The lists of coupons issued under Acts of 1871, 1879, 1892 and paid into the Second Auditor's Office are printed forms, filled in.
