Freedmen's talk

From the loose Crawford County records at the Georgia Archives:

Notice:  Two coloured speakers will address the freedmen of Crawford County at Knoxville on Friday night 25th instant on the political ideas of the day.   This 18th September 1868.

Note that while this date could be read as either 1848 or 1868, it is only in 1868 that Sep 25th falls on a Friday.
