Re: Knights, still stuck
In Response To: Re: Knights, still stuck ()
Thanks for this article. It was an interesting read. I appreciate your help, but unfortunately I couldn't glean any promising leads from it. I find it very ironic that so many people who seem to support Newt Knight's apparent pro-Union/ anti-racism image are only interested in the Black people who are Newt's relatives (mixed race). There were over 100 Black slaves in Jones County besides Rachel Knight (I transcribed the census myself). No historian I have come across seems to care at all about their histories. Please forgive me for sounding bitter, but this particular part of my research has been extremely frustrating.
