a type, there were others like her, and all of them were loved and respected by their master's children. I remember a circumstance regarding my friend, Captain Sam Henderson, and his servant, Henry, which illustrates also the love for the master the negro always showed. Captain Henderson commanded the scouts, which were so vCaptain Henderson commanded the scouts, which were so valuable to General Forrest. On one occasion he was in camp near Byhalia, Miss., with about twenty of his men, while the others were watching the enemy. Suddenly and unexpectedly a regiment of Yankees surrounded the party and all were made prisoners, except Captain Henderson, who escaped on foot. They were all taken to GermanCaptain Henderson, who escaped on foot. They were all taken to Germantown, Tenn., not far distant, and confined in a house. During the night Henry slipped out with both of his master's horses, and the following day rode into the Confederate lines.
