Notes
Content : Written on border: "July 27, 1861" Printed on border: "From a sketch by our special artist." Printed on border: "Illustrations of the Civil War in America." "Under the head of "Contraband of War" our Special Artist has forwarded to us a characteristic sketch (herewith engraved) of a party of slaves seeking protection in the Federal camp. It appears that the slaves from the different plantations in Virginia are continually going through the pickets of the Federal army, as fugitives from their masters, and when it is proved that their owners are fighting in the Secessionist ranks the slaves are treated as contraband of war." Includes additional text.
