Collection contains miscellaneous letters of Buckner, chiefly personal. One item, 1863, deals with intelligence of Union troop movements in Kentucky. Two letters are from Gen. Buckner to Gen. Grant, both dated Feb. 16, 1862, relative to the surrender by Buckner at Fort Donelson. Grant demanded unconditional surrender, which Buckner criticized. These two Buckner letters may be drafts and the letter from Grant a first copy.
