About the Collection
The Stuart Family Papers document multiple generations of a Pennsylvania family based in Boalsburg and Pittsburgh. The strengths of the collection are the military and personal Civil War-era materials associated with James T. Stuart (1837-1902) and his wife Emma Eliza Hunter (1848-1935), along with over a hundred years of family photographs. Most of the military papers are associated with Stuart's tenure as Captain of Company G, 49th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers (1864-1865). The personal materials include war-time correspondence, official military forms, a civil war diary, photographs, and other materials.
