ANALYZING THE EVIDENCE: Chickasaw Nation

There are several dates on this Chickasaw Nation freedmen roll. One date is the date of application; one is the date of enrollment; one is a date of birth, while another refers to a marriage application.

If the information on this document is indeed accurate, then five years passed from the time of application to the time that enrollment was approved.





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.
