A detachment of colored Odd Fellows

“A detachment of colored Odd Fellows passed through Swamp-poodle yesterday afternoon on their return from a funeral when a number of white roughs commenced stoning the procession. The colored men broke ranks, returned the fire, and for a time a regular pitched battle was in progress. As far as is known, no one on either side was injured”   Newspaper story, September 10, 1881
