THOMAS HOWELL COBB CORRESPONDENCE 1845-1868
LotNo. Symbol Lot Description
The following 20 lots represents an important historic collection of covers to and from Thomas Howell Cobb. It covers the period he was a Georgia Congressman 1843-1849 and the House of Representatives Speaker 1849-1851. He left Washington in 1851 to become Governor of Georgia, then returned to Washington in 1853 again as a Georgia Congressman and in 1857 was appointed Secretary of the Treasury. He was President Buchanan's choice to replace him and should have been the 1860 Democratic Presidential nominee, but as a vocal plantation slave owner, he lost too much Democrate support. He abandoned the Unionists in 1860 when Lincoln won the election and he became a key architect of the Confederacy, serving for a short time in 1861 as the first president of the Confederate States before Jefferson Davies' election. Cobb took a colonel commission in the Confederate army at the start of the Civil War, was promoted to brigadier general in 1862, and fought in the Peninsula Campaign and the Seven Days Battles. In 1863 he was made Major General of the Confederate Army in Florida & Georgia, a position he held to the end of the war in 1865. Cobb's younger brother, Thomas Reade Rootes Cobb, was an influential southern politician and brigadier general in the Confederate army (killed at Fredericksburg). Cobb's wife, Mary Ann Lamar, had a brother, colonel John Basil Lamar, who became General Cobb's aid-de-camp (killed at the Battle of Crampton's Gap). She also had a cousin, Gazeway Bugg Lamar, a Savannah cotton merchant who was arrested as a suspect in Lincoln's 1865 assassination. After the war, Cobb gained a Presidential pardon and went back to his law practice alternating between Athens-Georgia and Macon-Georgia until his death in 1868.
