Three important figures in Colorado
County politics during Reconstruction.
Top: Benjamin Franklin Williams, one of
the earliest black leaders in the county.
Top right: Johann Friedrich "Fritz" Ley-
endecker, a German-born Confederate
veteran whose ethnicity and sentiments
gave him status in both the black and
white communities. Right: Wells Thomp-
son, a conservative champion, who
remained loyal enough to the Confeder-
acy to pose for this photograph in his old
uniform, long after the war had ended.
