article from the Confederate Veteran mag., dated May, 1902, page 199.
Among the visitors to the Dallas Reunion was an aged negro from Bossier Parish, La., named HENRY JOHNSON. He went to the war with his master, Joseph Hodges, and into the firing line with him and when he was shot down carried him on his back for four miles to the rear. Johnson is now a prosperous farmer and owns 320 acres of land. He is highly respected by his white friends and proud that he
" was a Confederate soldier."
