List of Free Negroes in Franklin County

This is a list drawn up in 1864 of all the able-bodied free black men between the ages of eighteen and fifty in Franklin County. Of the fifteen men listed here, ten were "enrolled," or impressed, into serving the Confederate cause as laborers. The work usually consisted of building fortifications or other defense structures.
