K. encamp- Shavers, who is a negro, was President Lincoln's first bodyguard after his election to the presidency and until after the breaking out of the war was with him through the day and those hours of the night when Lincoln would permit of a gua.d of any sort being near him. For four year before Lincoln was made president the colored man was his family servant. After the election an even of Lincoln's thousand neighbors signed a petition asking that Shavers be appointed his bodyguard and Lincoln complied. When the war broke out Lincoln feared for the man's safety and would not permit him to continue as his guard. Shavers asked for an appointment to one of the colored regiments being formed for the war and his appointment to the recruiting ofticership of the colored regi ments of Indiana resulted. Shavers now lives in Colorado, and for .velars has never missed tin encampment. Among the prominent persons with the department of the Potomac, at l the G. A.

He was only 17 when he entered the army and in the second battle of Bull Run both legs were shot off. One of the most conspicuous figures among the delegates to the Grand Army encampment was John Fletcher Spenee, A. M L.L. D, of Knoxville.
