Owning Institution: UC Berkeley, Bancroft Library

About this Collection

This collection of papers was given to the Bancroft Library by Miss Ellen Ord, the diaries in 1922, and the remainder of the material in 1956. The papers contain correspondence, primarily of a military nature; accounts relating to the Coast Survey and to the Army; Army orders and circulars; 3 diaries, 1850-1856; and a few miscellaneous papers. The collection deals to a large extent with the Civil War period, but also touches upon other phases of the General's career, particularly post-Civil War Arkansas and Texas during disturbances in the Rio Grande area. Also included is a small portion of papers of his son, Edward Otho Cresap Ord, Jr., who followed a military career. View this collection on the contributor's website.
