Inspiration Behind the Name
The Williams Tote was inspired by Cathay Williams.
In 1844, Cathay Williams was born a slave in Independence, Missouri. (Ironic, right?) Cathay was "freed" by the Union Forces who then told her she would work as a cook and laundress. Not wanting to be a burden on her family when the Civil War ended, Cathay posed as a man - William Cathay - to join the newly formed 38th Infantry Regiment known as the Buffalo Soldiers.
