Although Carter was not one of the more well-known black leaders in Virginia during the post-Reconstruction period, Heinrich and Harding argue that he was part of a larger network of local and statewide leaders who aimed to protect African American civil liberties and pave the way for educational opportunities in Virginia.

His mother abandoned him when he was very young and left him at the mercy of relatives. After establishing that there was no connection between Lake Tanganyika and the River Nile, Stanley returned to London while Livingstone stayed back to continue his explorations. In 1872, Stanley penned a book titled ‘How I Found Livingstone; travels, adventures, and discoveries in Central Africa’.

Sir Henry Morton Stanley’s early life appears to have been a mix of poverty, adventure and make-believe. Stanley was actually born John Rowlands in the Welsh county town of Denbigh in 1841. Under his new name, Stanley joined the Confederate Army following the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861 and fought at the Battle of Shiloh. After being captured he quickly changed sides and enlisted in the Union Army. Perhaps preferring a life at sea he appears to have deserted the Union Army and joined the Federal Navy serving as a clerk on board the frigate Minnesota, before he eventually jumped that ship as well.
