  • Description

    Jacob Gooding was a merchant in New Bern, N.C., during the Civil War period.

    The papers in this collection consist of copies of the first page of an account of damages done to Jacob Gooding's store by Union soldiers (1862) and two letters (1871) concerning the possibility of Gooding collecting claims against the federal government for damage done by Union troops during the Civil War. Edward Stanly recommends a company to represent the claimant and quotes General Burnside concerning the incident. In the second letter, a firm in Maryland advises that while the government had not recognized Southern claims, there were prospects that favorable legislation would be forthcoming. It is suggested that Gooding proceed with preparations for entering his claim in expectation of Congressional action.
