Slaves In The War Story Picture-Deborah's class-Oliver A.
It looks like these slaves are lining up to practice loading a gun or watching for enemies coming(lookout). They look the exact opposite of scared, they look very brave and ready for anything. They think there strong and nobody would mess with them even though I know the the other force would. I think they are African AmericanYankee Soldiers. I think that because all the union uniforms seem to only have one button down the chest and the confederates with two sets of buttons down the chest to close their suits.
