Notes.

Note from page 355: 1. Using Herndon's age (seventy) as a guide, this interview was given between February 13, 1865, and February 13, 1866, but the close similiarity of this document to the previous one suggests that husband and wife gave their testimony at the same time.

Note from page 355: 2. The game, long bullets, is described in what follows.

Note from page 355: 3. A popular card game for two players known variously as All Fours, Seven Up, or Old Sledge.

Note from page 355: 4. Communal gatherings that combined the work of husking corn with music and entertainment (supplied in Southern states by black musicians) and general festivity.
