Description: Former slaves at Fair Oaks, by Gibson. No copyright line on recto. Published by Gardner, credit to Gibson. No. 478, “Old Frame House of Fair Oaks Battle Field, Pierced by hundreds of bullets, and used as a Hospital by Hooker’s Division.” A number of the people standing against the building appear to be former slaves. It’s interesting to contemplate the situation of the slaves who inhabited most of the battle sites of the Civil War before, during, and right after the battles.
