Interesting archive of Joseph Totten, Chief of Engineers for the U. S. Army for 25 years, complete with hand-drawn schematics of military architecture.
Totten's amazing career spanned from Jefferson's administration to Lincoln's. The archive includes a 12-page manuscript document, a treatise on defense construction and various grades of ordinance. There are three excellent schematics on blue paper. Also included is a document "On Drainage of Roofs of Arches", in manuscript, and states "Copy of a letter from Gen'l Totten to Cap. Cullem". This document contains a fold-out of architectural drawings on page 3, most likely in Totten's hand.
