Col Patrick Henry Anderson owned slave Jordan Anderson by the mid-1840's. Jordan Anderson married Amanda McGregor in 1848.

Patrick Henry Anderson died at the age of 44.

Jordan Anderson was freed by Union Troops in 1864 and spent his remaining 40 years in Ohio.

Jordan Anderson's collaborator to whom he reportedly dictated the letter was a Dayton banker named Valentine Winters. An abolitionist who once hosted Abraham Lincoln at his mansion. It was originally published in August 1865 by the Cincinnati Commercial, a paper with Republican leanings.

Jordan likely made his way to Dayton with the help of Winters' son-in-law, Dr. Clarke McDermont, the surgeon in charge of the Cumberland Military Hospital in Nashville, where both Jordan and Mandy worked for a time, says Finkenbine, who places Jordan and his family in Dayton by August 1864. Anderson becomes an employee and tenant of Winters.
