44th VA INF, could you please site the sources of your information such as Johan has done---books, journals, diaries, newspapers from the Civil War that have the information you referenced? I am particularly interested in your statement that ONLY THREE Northern freedmen were forced back into slavery.  I have read volumns and volumns of books about the Civil War and never come across such a reference anywhere.  

Let me add that if you suppose I am a highly biased Yankee, I have great sympathy for both the Union and the Confederacy having lived many years on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line. Afterall, my screen name is Cleburne Fan. You do know who General Cleburne was, I assume.
