Johnny joined the Union army when he was only ten years old and became the youngest noncommissioned officer in U.S. history. He retired as a brigadier general in 1915.

    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.
