The papers include a mathematical workbook dating from 1814 and belonging to Hitch’s father, Joseph Hitch. The workbook is lined with newsprint from 1803, with notices of the Louisiana Purchase and advertisements for the recapture of runaway slaves. The papers also include a journal of Hitch’s farm work from 1858; a receipt for the purchase of Confederate bonds; examples of Confederate postage stamps; and dozens of letters written by Hitch to his wife and sons while he served in the Confederate Army.
