Benjamin Stoddert Ewell Broadside
Scope and Contents
The College of William and Mary at Williamsburg, VA, suffered damage during the Civil War. Benjamin S. Ewell, then president of William and Mary, published a broadside appealing for financial aid in rebuilding the institution. Though obviously written after the Civil War, its exact date is unknown. This appeal includes endorsements for the rebuilding fund by Bishop Potter of New York, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Generals Grant and Meade, and by Wm. W. Corcoran of Washington City.
