William Gilmore Simms and Partisan Warfare

Dear Sir:

Having recently completed a book manuscript on Confederate irregular
warfare 1861 – 1865 I am aware of Simms' great influence on the
perception of the partisan in the South through his books and poems.

Noticing in a biographical sketch of Simms that he adviced Southern
politicians during the war on military plans, I wonder if the society is
aware if any of these plans are preserved in manuscript form ?

For your attention I am enclosing a short CV.

My best wishes for the success of the WGS Society (especially in 2006
and 2007).
