Summary
Photocopy of a microfilmed copy of a typescript of an interview. Austin was interviewed by T. Pat Matthews in 1937 as part of the Federal Writer's Project for the Works Progress Administration. The item includes handwritten corrections. Austin claims to have seen Abraham Lincoln, General Robert E. Lee, and General William Sherman, but the nature of her account makes her assertion doubtful. She says the slaves were ignorant of their emancipation. She stayed on the plantation a year after she was freed. She also tells about the murder of slaves and the jails in which they were incarcerated
