Title Papers of Edward Hastings Ripley
Creator Ripley, Edward Hastings
Dates of Creation 1840-1915 (inclusive), 1862-65 (bulk)
Scope & Content The Ripley Papers are organized into four series: Correspondence, General Military Affairs, Ordnance Department Records, and Personal and Family Papers. Most of the collection concerns his Civil War service and command of the Ninth Vermont Regiment. Correspondence concerns Ripley's appointments and military orders, the occupation of Richmond, and Ripley's later research and writing about his war experiences. Recruitment papers from 1862 for Rutland County record the current residence, place of birth, age, complexion, eye and hair color, height and occupation for each recruit. Other military material includes muster rolls, a large number of ordnance reports and papers on arms and equipment related to arms, papers relating to his capture at Harper's Ferry, and letters and later addresses related to his command of Richmond, Virginia after its capture by Union Troops. The earliest papers are family correspondence dating from 1840. There is a small group of family papers and genealogy related to the Ripley family.
