Interview with Colonel Floyd Mann
QUESTION 76
INTERVIEWER:

AND I'M SORRY START AGAIN. WHAT WAS THE WHOLE …

Col. Floyd Mann:

Well, at the time that General Graham and myself went in to declare martial law on the part of the Governor, the church was absolutely packed with people. And there was nothing panicky about the crowd, they seemed to be enjoying themselves. We had ordered the National Guard to make coffee and bring doughnuts for the people inside the church and they were serving those doughnuts and coffee at the time we were reading the decree. So I felt that there was certainly no uneasiness at that point in time by the group because they knew the National Guard was there and the marshals and state police and city police.
