HISTORY DETECTIVES

Galvez Papers

  • Aired: 08/30/2010
  • 15:42
  • Rating: TV-G
Our contributor has a document from 1779 signed by the Governor of Spanish colonial Louisiana that emancipated Agnes Mathieu from slavery. What was so special about Agnes? Most freedom papers from the time bear only the notarization of a local clerk. Elyse Luray discovers Galvez's pivotal role in America's fight for freedom and in a romantic story of our contributor's past.
