    Photograph of Confederate Veterans Including Former Slave & Confederate Cook Joe Warren. This photograph, 9½" x 7½", was taken at a reunion of Henry County, Tennessee Confederate soldiers at the Henry County Courthouse, Circa 1910 Most of the veterans are wearing their Confederate Southern Crosses of Honor. At the far right, bottom row is the former slave owned by Colonel William Travis, Joe Warren. Colonel Travis took Warren to war as a cook. Warren and Tobe Porter, standing beside him, remained true to the South after the war, even attending Confederate veterans' gatherings such as this. There is a typed notation of the old soldiers' names at the bottom of the photograph which has been attached to a black board bearing the photographer's logo "Jenkins, Paris, Tennessee". Certainly one of the most remarkable Confederate veterans' photographs we've ever seen.
