Collection Description

Biographical Note

Oliver V. Strickland, born ca. 1840, was a private in Company I of the 43rd Georgia Infantry Regiment under Col. H. C. Kellogg.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of letters of Oliver V. Strickland from 1863-1937. Two letters were written by Strickland to his mother, Celia, in Cumming, Georgia, during the Civil War, and concern desertions and his apparent censure for sleeping at his post. The later letters deal with the scattered Strickland family descendants trying to secure oil property in Texas which they claim is theirs by right of an ancestor who settled and lived there. One letter dated February 22, 1937 is from the attorney in Texas secured by the family to handle their interests.
