Administrative History

John F. Green was born in Darlington, South Carolina and married at a young age. He served his country in the Civil War. Although he was injured many times, he continued to return to active duty with the Confederate forces. The war did not affect his attitude, nor did it stop his activity in the First Presbyterian Church, of which he was noted as being a devout member. He became the Treasurer of the City of Hope, the city in which he resided during his later days.


This collection begins with copies of John F. Green’s accounts of his days during the Civil War. Toward the end of the collection are copies of newspaper articles that illustrate the emotional depth the sudden loss of John F. Green had on the people who knew him.
