      Subject: More Alabama gubernatorial records on microfilm

      Greetings: More gubernatorial records have been microfilmed at the
      Alabama Dept. of Archives and History. Governor McVay, all three Civil
      War governors, and the Reconstruction era are well represented in this
      microfilm. More than one reel of microfilm has records of Governor
      Shorter alone. These were microfilmed in chronological order by
      governor. Please see the scope and content note below. Take care, Mike
      Alabama Governor, Administrative files, 1819-1899, 4 microfilm reels
      Scope and Content Note:  These records form an artificial collection of
      materials found and pulled from other series after the records of those
      governors were microfilmed.  Within this collection there are relatively
      large holdings for Governor McVay and the Civil War governors A. B.
      Moore, John Gill Shorter and Thomas Hill Watts. Information about
      military elections, exemptions and appointments, an annual report of the
      Quartermaster General, as well as the production of salt during the
      Civil War is also included.  In A. B. Moore's files there is a letter
      from J. L. M. Curry that recommends John Pelham for a commission in the
      state forces in 1861.  There is also information relating to post Civil
      War militias, the vote in 1867 for the proposed Alabama Constitution
      during Reconstruction under Wager Swayne. That constitution was ratified
      in 1868 after a legal challenge.
