Abstract 

This document contains a list of county names, followed by box and folder numbers, indicating affidavits and depositions created by members of the Council of Federated Organizations (COFO). The members document instances of brutality, harassment, incarceration, arson, bombing terrorism and murder inflicted by both private citizens and law enforcement officers during the Mississippi Freedom Project of 1964. The affidavits and depositions were used as exhibits in the case of L.A. Rainey against the Southern Mississippi District Court, and then again in the United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.
