Scope and Contents

This collection consists of two letters written by Captain John L. Logan and a biography of him written by Eunice Arnold in 1924.


Biographical Information

John L. Logan was born February 14, 1833, in South Carolina, to Tyler and Nancy Davis Logan. The family relocated in 1838, to Abbeville, Mississippi, and later to Camden, Arkansas. Logan married Mary Jane Danforth on October 12, 1854. He enlisted in Company B of the Camden Knights of Ouachita County on July 1, 1861, and was elected captain. This unit later became part of the 11th Arkansas Infantry. During his service, Logan was promoted to full colonel, and possibly to brigadier general. The enclosed letter to Senator Robert Ward Johnson, as well as the biography, deal with confusion surrounding his promotion.

Logan returned to Camden following the war, and in 1869, moved with his family to New Orleans, where he operated a dry goods store. He died of yellow fever in 1871.
