Personal Experiences of Mrs. Campbell Bryce During the Burning of Columbia, South Carolina by General W. T. Sherman's Army, February 17, 1865
This record of my personal experiences during the occupation of Columbia by the Federal army under General W. T. Sherman, I dedicate to you, my dear children, remembering well how eagerly I sought for and cherished every tradition and scrap of history handed down to me by my parents of their parents, who were participants in the War of the Revolution. Though this story has often been told, and is old and familiar, I flatter myself that your children and your children's children will appreciate my record far more than you do now, to whom it is more. than a twicetold tale

William James Smith
This ledger meticulously details the prices paid and received for scores of human beings (as slaves; only first names are recorded), as well as the expenses incurred by Smith in undertaking this business venture, such as feeding, clothing, sheltering, and nursing the people he purchased and sold. The details of the book illustrate that Smith took several "trips" between 1844 and 1854 to buy and sell slaves: detailed records of purchases and sales of "Negroes" exist for all of the years between 1844 and 1854. The listing of expenses for the year of 1844 (the most complete account) indicate that that year Smith traveled from the Piedmont to Charleston, then to Richmond, Virginia and other towns and cities in central Virginia such as Charlottesville, Madison, Orange, Gordonsville, and Fredericksburg. The expense records indicate that Smith returned to the Piedmont via an overland route that passed through Lincolnton, North Carolina (between Charlotte and Hickory). That year he undertook business as far south as Hamburg, South Carolina (near Augusta, Georgia).
