    Seeking interview of William Branch by WPA

    Antonio Addessi Newbie

      I'm looking for an interview that was done by the Works Progress Administration. It involved to infantry soldiers from the US 25th Infantry - William Branch and William Watkins. Particularly Branch's telling of his time as a slave, emancipation and enlistment into the Army. He served in the Indian Wars as a frontier soldier in 1875. I've found his grave in San Antonio. But I was looking for the interview that is also referenced in this book - Schubert, Frank N. Voices of the Buffalo Soldier: Records, Reports, and Recollections of Military Life and Service in the West. Albuquerque, NM: University of New Mexico Press. 2003. Any assistance is much appreciated.
