Julius Franklin Howell (January 17, 1846 - June 19, 1948) joined the Confederate Army when he was 16. After surviving a few battles, Howell eventually found himself in a Union prison camp at Point Lookout, Maryland. It was here where he first heard that President Lincoln was shot the night before. In 1947, at the age of 101, Howell made this recording at the Library of Congress.
