JACK JOHNSON: CONTRADICTIONS TO HISTORY

On Tuesday, February 25 at 6:30 p.m., the National Archives at Kansas City will host Phil Dixon for a lecture titled Jack Johnson: Contradictions to History from a Heavyweight Champion’s Unpublished Prison Manuscript. A 6:00 p.m. reception will precede the lecture. Please note: C-SPAN will be on site filming this event for television viewing at a later date. Extra lighting and audio visual equipment will be present.

Much has been written about America’s first African American heavyweight champion, Jack Johnson. However, we very seldom hear of first-person accounts from Johnson himself. While a prisoner at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary in 1921, Johnson attempted to journal his own life’s story and document his highly controversial career in boxing. In Johnson’s handwritten manifesto, penned on prison stationary, he not only explained the inside story of his fights and the boxers he faced; but also outlined his many experiences outside the squared circle, including accounts of Johnson’s personal opinions toward segregation. His is a story the public was never allowed to read, one written in defiance of all that was said against him, then, and now, as the world’s first African American heavyweight champion, unintentional activist and proud American. Dixon will discuss his research on Johnson’s manuscript found within the Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary inmate case files at the National Archives at Kansas City.

To make a reservation for this free event call 816-268-8010 or email kansascity.educate@nara.gov.

LISTENING TO INDIANS ORAL HISTORY COLLECTION

We have created a research guide to an oral history collection held at the St. Louis Community College– Florissant Valley Library. The guide has PDF transcripts of more than 140 interviews with American Indians conducted during the mid-1970s. I think this material might be of interest to family historians.

Here’s the Worldcat link and a direct link to the guide. A Worldcat search for the name of one of the “memoirists” in this collection will pull up the record that has a link to the guide. PDFs can be accessed from the guide.

BATTLE OF OLUSTEE

The largest battle fought in Florida during the Civil War was the Battle of Olustee, also known as the Battle of Ocean Pond. On February 20, 1864, about 5,000 troops from each side fought in Baker County, Florida, 50 miles west of Jacksonville. Although it was a small battle, fought mostly in the woods because of the nearby Ocean Pond, it was costly with a large number of casualties.

Union General Seymour wanted to occupy Jacksonville to disrupt transportation and supply lines. On the Confederate side, Brigadier General Finegan took a position at Olustee and was joined by Brigadier General Colquitt and his troops. What started as a skirmish grew into a full-blown battle with Union troops from as far north as New Hampshire and Connecticut, plus three regiments of U.S. Colored Troops.

The proportion of casualties to men who fought made it one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. An annual reenactment of the battle takes place at the Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park.

Visit Fold3 to read the report of battle, described as “the engagements with the abolitionists near Ocean Pond,” by the commander of the 2nd Brigade, George P. Harrison, and view his brigade’s casualty report.

ANDERSONVILLE PRISON

The most infamous Confederate prison of the Civil War was located at Andersonville, Georgia. It was known as Camp Sumter when the first Union prisoners arrived in February 1864. The original stockade was built to house 10,000 men, but as hundreds of captured prisoners arrived every day, the site quickly reached capacity and then exceeded it. Six months later, over 32,000 men lived in deplorable conditions inside the prison. In its 14 months of existence, 45,000 men came through the gates: nearly 13,000 are buried there.

There were 150 prison camps on both sides in the Civil War, and they all suffered from disease, overcrowding, exposure, and food shortages. But Andersonville was notorious for being the worst. Some men agreed to join the Union Army to escape the camp, and fought for the North as "Galvanized Yankees," after judging the perils of further imprisonment to be far greater than those of the battlefield. Eventually, General Sherman’s occupation of Atlanta forced rebel officials to move prisoners to other camps in Georgia and South Carolina.

The only official executed for war crimes after the Civil War was Captain Henry Wirz, the Confederate commandant of Andersonville Prison. He was charged with conspiring with others to “injure the health and destroy the lives” of Union soldiers. While no conspiracy was ever truly substantiated, public opinion forced a guilty verdict and his execution by hanging.

The National Park Service maintains the prison site, a museum, and the Andersonville National Cemetery.

Despite the terrible death toll, thousands of men survived Andersonville and related their stories. If you had an ancestor confined to Andersonville (or any other Civil War prison for that matter), their tales may have been passed down over the last century and a half. The military records of the men who survived Andersonville Prison can be found in the documents on Fold3.

AUSSIE UFO REPORTS

The National Archives holds many records relating to unidentified flying objects (UFOs), flying saucers and other mysterious aerial sightings. Most are from the 1950s to the 1970s, when public interest in UFOs was high and many sightings were reported to Commonwealth authorities.

This talk by Nick Gleghorn from the National Archives’ Adelaide office will explore Commonwealth government policy towards UFOs over the decades, sightings reported by the public and subsequent investigations with specific examples from South Australia. It will also cover the relationship between different government agencies charged with reporting on sightings and the emergence of a subculture (such as UFO societies) interested in these phenomena throughout Australia and globally.

Bookings are essential for the free talk at the Adelaide City Library, Rundle Mall, on Wednesday 5 March, from 12 noon to 1pm.

ANNUAL AWARDS TO BE PRESENTED

MoSGA recognizes individuals, groups, and organizations that have put forth that extra effort to support genealogical research, activities, and publications in the Show-Me State.

We ask for your help in identifying those who should be candidates for special recognition. Neither submitters nor nominees need be members of MoSGA.

Jenna Mills, chair of the Awards Committee, says “As volunteers ourselves, we at MoSGA understand the commitment volunteers put forth throughout the year and in many instances year after year. Those volunteers and contributors are vital to the success of research and indexing projects, writing and publishing newsletters and journals as well as planning and hosting annual conferences and workshops. The genealogical community relies on these individuals and MoSGA would like to show our appreciation. I urge all Missouri societies, libraries and archives to nominate those that go the extra mile.” There are three main categories for awards:

Awards of Merit are presented for particularly outstanding achievements by volunteers or persons not financially compensated for their efforts. For example, nominees for Awards of Merit might be local societies and their officers, or diligent researchers, compilers, and authors.

Certificates of Appreciation are awarded to salute those professionals who, although paid for their efforts, consistently give more than required or expected. Nominees for Certificates of Appreciation could include repositories, librarians, archivists, or governmental employees and officials.

Directors’ Awards are presented for distinguished service over an extended period of time in support of genealogy, to be presented to an individual, group, organization or institution, for exceptional contribution to the field and extra effort to promote good will and improve service.

Additionally, subject to the approval of the Board of Directors, the President of the Association shall have the authority to designate a recipient of the President’s Award for outstanding service to genealogy in the State of Missouri.

Award recipients will be recognized and honored at the annual MoSGA Conference Awards Luncheon. Attendance is not required to receive the award, but we do hope all those selected for these special honors will make every effort to be present. Not all nominees will receive awards, as we generally present three or four in each category, but all will receive careful consideration by the committee. If a past nominee did not receive an award, please feel free to resubmit the nomination for consideration.

To make an award nomination:

1. Submit the name and address of the individual or group.
2. Include a brief summary of their accomplishments.
3. Send your nominations to MoSGA Awards, PO Box 833, Columbia, MO 65205-0833 or email to Awards Chairman at Awards1@MoSGA.org.

The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2014.
