Of special note is a transcript of an interview (June 27, 1964) with Robert McNamara, Secretary of Defense, about Buford Posey, a white Mississippian who suspected that the Ku Klux Klan had killed the three men, along with a statement (November 24, 1964) furnished to the FBI by Horace Doyle Barnett, one of the murderers, detailing exactly what had occurred. There are also sympathy letters from many political and civil rights leaders. In addition to detailed articles about the disappearance and murder, there is a copy of the indictment charging eighteen men with murder. The Memorial Activities and Legacy series, 1965-2010 covers a wide array of events that commemorate the lives of the three men.
