Toomb, of Cardenas, Cuba, who gave it to me. This map
was used by General Breckenridge in the journey through
Florida, May, 1865. I was in the escort of President Davis
and his Cabinet, including General Breckenridge, from
Greensboro, N. C., to Washington, Ga. We arrived in
Washington about May 3, 1865. There was held a Cabinet
meeting in the second story of a small brick office, at the
door of which I was posted as guard, by my captain, F. D.
N. Riley, of Greensville, Ala., who had about thirteen of
his company present. After this meeting was over, we were
given twenty-one dollars each, in coin, and told the war
was ended. Mr. Davis left, going South early the following
morning. Our little squad, going to our homes in South
Alabama, followed close behind for about five days, until
we were captured and paroled on the evening of May 6th
at Brown's Ferry, Georgia. The second day afterwards Mr.
Davis was captured about twenty-five miles south of us,
our squad being the last soldiers with Mr. Davis.
