Correct. In the lower right-hand corner of the document, the words "date of application and enrollment" appear. While we know that the application was completed in 1898, we cannot be sure if it was on August 26th or September 26th, since both dates are written.





Major corporate funding for African American Lives 2 and its outreach initiatives is provided by The Coca-Cola Company and Johnson & Johnson. Additional corporate funding is provided by Buick.
