Notes.

Note from page 465: 1. Capt. Levi W. Goodan commanded a company in the same regiment in which AL served.

Note from page 465: 2. Klein must be confused as to the identity of his regimental commander, as there is no record of a Moses K. Anderson serving in the Black Hawk War. The colonel of the Fourth Regiment was Samuel M. Thompson; Achilles Morris was lieutenant colonel.

Note from page 465: 3. Meaning "now Oquawka."

Note from page 465: 4. Presumably another interview with Klein, which has not been located.

Note from page 466: 5. The last three paragraphs may belong to the Klein interview or may be stray pieces of information Herndon noted and Springer duly copied.
