I've never read about any white slaves
Widow,

A bit off topic here, but in a way it mirrors the excesses at Fort Pillow. On April 16, 1746, the battle of Culloden Moor was fought by Scottish Highlanders and troops under the Duke of Cumberland. 300 dead English compared to as many as 1,400 dead Scots. But it didn't end on the battlefield as the Highlanders were systematicaly hunted down and killed or sent to the Amercian colonies as slaves. Many Scottish Americans can trace their roots back to slave blocks in Maryland and Barbados.
