The collection contains various materials relating for the most part to the history and organization of the 1st. SC Volunteer
Infantry, later designated the 33rd U. S. Colored Troops. A significant portion of the material is related to Thomas Wentworth
Higginson who served as the unit's commander between 1862 and 1864. There are both original primary source materials in the
form of documents, correspondence (including items from William Lloyd Garrison and Horace Greeley) and secondary source materials,
mostly photocopies, including such things as regimental histories.
