e the army was crossing Falling Waters, and sent to Johnson's Island, where the officers from Port Hudson were also imprisoned. Said the Doctor: My recollection is that there were thirteen negerted or accepted freedom, though it was urged upon them time and again. You remember that Port Hudson was compelled to surrender after Vicksburg had fallen. The officers were notified they would am going to stay here as long as you stays, if I starve and rot. The officers captured at Port Hudson were from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, I think. There were thirteen negroes, all of(who were members of Watson's Battery). This negro stated to the Yankees, at the surrender of Port Hudson, I love my white folks above the freedom you talk about, and if I am ever free it got to come from them. Dr. Christian was unable to remember the names of the officers from Port Hudson, which is to be regretted, but I submit that no stronger proof of the loyalty of the negroes is needed
