Who counted slaves or their color?  A slave was a slave was a slave.... They existed in the north as well as the south after the start of the War.  I presently live in a rural area a bit north of Gettysburg.  Slaves (of whatever color) certainly did exist here; this was (still is) farming country and labor was in short supply.

I believe slavery was out of this area before 1863 - probably.

My personal sources are Wills and Day(?) Books.

Does anyone know which was the predominant CS flag during July 1863?  Was it the Stainless Banner?  I'm not sure that the Bonnie Blue was around any more by then, and there were quite a few flags of various generals.
