Several hundred men registering with the Freedman's Bureau after the war reported their 'home' as being in the north and that they were captured and brought South as slaves during the Gettysburg campaign.

However, I'm not sure where I picked up this tidbit. I have a vague mental photgraph of it being in an issue of the Journal of Southern History.

Mainly, it sticks in my mind as a good use of tangential records...
