Title

Letter from C. Hobson Goddin to Martin L. Shotzberger

Description

This letter was sent on July 16, 1965, by C. Hobson Goddin, a member of the Richmond Civil War Centennial Committee, to Martin L. Shotzberger, the Dean of University College. The committee wanted to place plaques on buildings in Richmond that served as hospitals during the Civil War, which Goddin called "the War Between the States." One of the buildings that was a hospital was University College’s Columbia Building; the plaque’s inscription read, "CONFEDERATE LOUISIANA GENERAL HOSPITAL also known as Richmond College, Columbia Hospital. Later used by Federal Occupation Forces and known as Camp Casey. Richmond Civil War Centennial Committee 1965" Goddin wanted to get Shotzberger’s permission to install the plaque since President George M. Modlin did not respond to Goddin’s letter.
