Confederate "Slave Hunt" in Pennsylvania

From the June 30, 2013, Pittsburgh (Pa.) Post Gazette. //// In June 1863, Brigadier General Albert Jenkins' cavalry, in Lee's vanguard, galloped into Pennsylvania not only to spy and steal supplies, but also to round up blacks as contraband. //// Lee had issued specific orders to his troops not to act as Union soldiers had in the South. //// It is estimated that around 1,000 blacks were taken. //// --Old Secesh
