Excerpt from Billy and Dick: From Andersonville Prison to the White House

I am personally acquainted with Ralph O. Bates, known as Billy. We lived in the same town in boyhood, and I know he is the man he represents himself to be. - William H. Woodruff, Cleveland, Ohio, Feb. 18, 1897.

Comrade Ralph O. Bates (Billy) and myself were born and raised in the same neighborhood; I am well acquainted with all his family. The story of "Billy and Dick" is the uncolored truth. That he is the same Billy can be proven by many living witnesses in Richmond County, Ohio - D. K. Charles, M. D., Philomath, Oregon, Jan. 27, 1891.

Ralph O. Bates was in Troop H and I in Troop E of the same regiment. We were from the same town and I knew his family. He is the Billy of "Billy and Dick from Andersonville Prison to the White House." - Louis Geoch, Abilene, Kansas, April 2, 1902.

I have known Ralph O. Bates for many years, having enlisted from my native county. I can testify that he is the man he represents himself to be and that his story is true. - P. C. Richardson, Seattle, Washington, June 1,1892.

The query in the minds of many who have heard this story was "Is this really the man?"
