A Guide to the Charles H. Moore Reminiscences, 1932-1933
Charles Henry Moore (b. 1859) was the son of William James Moore, who had emigrated from Copiah County, Mississippi, to Nacogdoches, Texas in 1844. Moore was raised in Anderson County.
Two copies of "The Three Forks of the Trinity and Anderson County during Reconstruction" compose the Charles H. Moore Reminiscences, 1932-1933, chronicling the immigration of Moore’s family to Nacogdoches, Texas, and the history of Anderson County. The reminiscences concern the Moore family’s settlement in Palestine, conflicts with Native Americans, and life in Reconstruction era Anderson County. Additionally, race relations and the rise of the Ku Klux Klan are discussed.
