    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 Square sometime around 1910. Most of the old soldiers have their Confederate Southern Crosses of Honor proudly displayed. 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 "Jenkins, Paris, Tennessee" mark.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
