Lori, there is a rather lengthy account of the incident which originally appeared in an Albany newspaper and picked-up by the "Georgia Weekly Telegraph and Georgia Journal and Messenger", Macon, Georgia, Issue 29, Col. A, Tuesday 15 July 1879. I have viewed a copy of the original article but am having trouble printing it out but will try it again later if you are interested in a copy. Briefly, Slaughter was killed by James Matthis, happened after a 4th of July bar-b-que and after a lot of drinking. Appears that Slaughter was the instigator. Advise if interested in more. Rick
