War, Runaway Slaves, Blacks in Uniform (1861-1865)

For some slaves nothing changes during the war years, life goes on as they serve their master. For others, they find safety on a new "secret railroad". Some Blacks find comfort in the fit of a Government Issued Uniform, others find that the Uniform doesn't fit so well.
