When looking and reading on the topic of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy, one should not overlook those persons who were captured with him and who also spent time imprisoned.

One of these persons was Francis R. Lubbock, former Governor to the State of Texas, who returned to Texas after the end of the war.

Another person captured with Jefferson Davis was John Henniger Reagan, Postmaster General of the Confederacy and acting Secretary of the Treasury at the end of the war.

After release from prison, John Henniger Reagan also moved to Texas and later became a United States Senator. (1887-1891)

In order to assist in his Career Development, John Henniger Reagan was the recepient of an "Honarary Degree" which was bestowed upon him by Tulane University of New Orleans, LA.

And, not unlike any good "Son of the South", John Henniger Reagan named his frist born son "Jefferson Davis Reagan".

Thereafter, Jefferson Davis Reagan had a daughter, Ruby Taylor Regan, who married Thomas Soule, Jr.

Those not familiar with the "Soule" name should research the history of New Orleans.

The links at www.tulanelink.com provides a great deal of interesting reading. The CIA sponsored mind control experiments in the '50s for example.

And, not unlike the "Beale Code", if one knows which names to search for, it just may provide the key to the "treasure".

Whatever the case, we are most assuredly speaking of New Orleans MONEY!

This one is well worth reading.

New Orleans Times Picayune, Dec 8, 1980

Burke Rites are Tuesday

William P. Burke, retired Central Intelligence Agency officer, died Sunday (7th) at Touro Infirmiary after a brief illness.  He was 80.

A native of New Orleans, Mr. Burke was regional director of overt activities in the southeastern states for the Central Intelligence Group, a predecessor of the CIA.

A position he held after World War II until his retirement in 1962.

He was educated at ----------Tulane Law School.

He was admitted to the Louisiana and Federal Bars in 1925 and practiced law in New Orleans until 1943, when he volunteered for the Marine Corps.  He served in the Pacific Theater of Operations with the Fourth Marine Division and obtained the rank of lieutenant colonel.

My note:  There are 121 Louisiana Confederate soldiers with the last name "Burke"

Another significant death at the Touro Infirmary was that of General Claire L. Chennalt, founder of the AVG/Flying Tigers of WWII/China fame.

General Chennault, who had resided in Louisiana for a number of years, died on July 27, 1958 in New Orleans.

"Before I left the United States in the summer of 1941, I asked a few friends in Louisiana to watch the newspapers and send me any clippings about the A.V.G." (Flying Tigers)

Claire L. Chennault

So What??????????????????????????????????????????????

Therein lies a portion of one of the direct connections of William Pawley to Louisiana.

For those who may not have studied the history, the AVG/Flying Tigers, although commanded by Claire Chennault, this fighter pilot group was entirely dependent upon the Central Aircraft Manufacturing Company (CAM Co.), who's President was William D. Pawley.

The "Pawley" connection to the JFK assassination is a mire and mirage of smoke and mirrors.

John U. Barr

New Orleans, LA

Chairman-States Rights Party of Louisiana, 1948

National Chairman-Draft Byrd for Democratic Nominee for President, 1944

Leander Perez:

New Orleans Political Leader and direct supporter of the Louisiana States Right Party.

Leander Perez was highly involved in the plan/decision to invite General Walker to come to New Orleans and give a speech during the period in which JFK was to be in Dallas, TX.

Walker met privately with Perez on November 20, 1963 at Perez's office, and on November 21, met with over 30 conservative leaders of New Orleans at the Jung Hotel.

Fenner's Louisiana Battery

http://www.19thalabama.org/sdlee.html

This somewhat places into perspective the #1 and #2 positions held on the Board of Tulane.

One relatively good article on General Randall Lee Gibson.

With his "University of Louisiana" education and aid-de-camp to the Governor of LA experience, as well as Law Practice, it is not difficult to see why he became the first head of Tulane.

Also referenced is the quite famous "Washington Artillery" of Louisiana which had it's own building in New Orleans after the war.

The Krewe of "REX"!

There are a variety of locations in which one will find the names of those of New Orleans who were of the prestige, power, and money.

The "Krewe of REX" is one of the primary locations, and REX is always "King" of Mardi Gras in New Orleans

It is also noteworthy that Mildred Lee, Daughter of Confederate General Robert E. Lee was the first "Queen" of the New Orleans Mardi Gras.

In 1883, Winnie Davis, daughter of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, was "Queen" of the New Orleans Mardi Gras.

Although one will not find the name "Oswald" associated with REX.

The name "Claverie" is most certainly found, as is the names of many others who had direct connections to the Claverie family.

"In January, 1960, Cuba expropriates 70,000 acres of land held by U.S. sugar companies, who refused to sell the land at any price."

"This land includes 35,000 acres held by the powerful United Fruit Co., which had attained over 270,000 acres of Cuban land at the time."

http://www.marxist.org/history/cuba/subject/bay-of-pigs/

Anyone who has not studied the United Fruit Company, should certainly do so.

Especially since there is a direct link-in-the-chain from United Fruit to Lee Harvey Oswald.

"Three generations of Queens of Comus; Mrs. William Burke; Miss Larrousine; Miss Burke"

http://nutrias.org/~noplguides/foc/cabildo.htm

It would appear that history has moved from the Daughters of General Robert E. Lee and Confederate President Jefferson Davis, to the ultimate wife and thereafter the daughter of William Burke.

Director of Overt Operations, Central Intelligence Group.

Reily Coffee Company!

May as well check out this GOOD Southern family.

http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/la/e-...bios/reily.text

Particular attention should be given to:

1. Clinton, LA

2. Marriage to Estelle Weaks, Daughter of Confederate Colonel James Weaks.

3. Tulane

4. Newcomb College

And:

The "Boatner" family from which the William Boatner Reily name comes, were also of Confederate Army heritage.

There were other members of the Oswald family employed at Reily Coffee Company.

Not the kind of family business that would normally employ "Marxist"/Soviet defectors.

Lastly, one just may want to check out the Board of Tulane as well as the varioius years of REX.

The Reily name appears right along with many other names to ultimately follow.

From memory, this was a bit of a slap in the face of the owners by Castro as he paid them the ridiculous values they themselves had put on their properties for tax purposes. JohnD
