Ex slaves in America

Anderson & Minerva Edwards, ex-slaves, in Marshall Texas.

During the Civil War, Harrison County Texas (in which Marshall is located) had more slaves than any other county in the state. This photo was taken 72 years after the end of the Civil War - the couple must be quite elderly.
