Re: Number of Slaveholders in 1860, by State

An interesting comparison. The number of Slaveholders in the 1860 census in relation to the number of Families in the 1860 census.

It appears that at least 25% of the Families in the South were Slaveholders, with a high in some States nearing 45% Slaveholding Families.
