There are a number of black sailors visible among the crew. USS Miami (1862-1865)Members of the ship’s crew on the forecastle, circa 1864-65. Frank W. Hackett, a former officer of the ship, wrote in 1910: “The officer standing in the background, at the extreme prow of the ship, is W.N. Wells, Executive Officer. The man in the fore ground with his arm on the nine-inch gun is White, the gunner. Sergeant of Marines, Stanley, is sitting in the fore-ground, near the capstan”.
Even allowing for the fact that a small fraction of those from the slave states had been born free, nearly three men born into slavery served for every man born free. Even more so is that more than eleven thousand men were born in the slave states as against four thousand born in the free states. The practical effect of this policy became evident when Flag Officer Samuel F. Du Pont established federal control of the harbor at Port Royal, South Carolina, in November 1861. This beachhead eventually became the home port of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron, england jersey with repair and supply facilities that employed nearly a thousand contrabands. The strategic importance of the river to both sides assured that Secretary Welles’s directive regarding the employment of contrabands would have special relevance to the Mississippi Squadron. By September 1861, the volume of requests from commanders of naval vessels regarding authorization to enlist fugitive slaves reached such proportions that Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles, a Connecticut native of antislavery bent, felt obliged to act. At the same time, vessels in all the squadrons began taking fugitive slaves on board, enlisting the men as needed and forwarding others to places of safety.
In April 1863, as the combined army and navy assault on Vicksburg, Mississippi, took shape, Flag Officer David D. Porter instructed the commanders of vessels to take full advantage of “acclimated” black manpower.14 Under these guidelines, more than two thousand men enlisted on the vessels that plied the Mississippi and its tributaries.15 The refugee camps that sprang up in Union-occupied areas also proved a rich source of recruits. At the end of 1861, they made up roughly 6 percent of the crews of vessels. The categories for women boxers are Trailblazer, boxers whose last bout was no later than 1988, and Modern, those whose last contest came no earlier than 1989. Both female and male boxers must be retired for at least three years prior to the end of the calendar year in which voting takes place, meaning that boxers who last fought in 2016 are eligible for consideration. The three colors used on the numbers in the above preview were manually applied in a graphics application to emulate the colors of the numbers on the home jersey of England, which is blue outline, red base font and white inline. To keep herself in shape she has spent hours working out in her garage with gym equipment provided by energy drink company Red Bull, whose stable of international athletes she is part of.
The maritime culture of Chesapeake Bay, with its numerous tributaries and the port of Baltimore, offer part of the explanation for the large number of Marylanders in naval service. The fact that nearly six thousand (roughly 35 percent) of the black sailors whose nativity is known came from the Chesapeake Bay region is striking. With enlistment centers at the major Atlantic ports from Chesapeake Bay through New England, recruiters could draw upon the international seafaring fraternity to supplement the recruits from the seaboard states. John Robert Bond, for instance, a mariner of mixed African and Irish descent from Liverpool, England, enlisted during 1863 “to help free the slaves,” as his descendants recall. England, though they may be the originals, haven’t often been the best. The largest number of black men from any of the northern states- more than 2,300 in all- hailed from Maryland. The largest contingent of southern-born men, however, was the Virginians, more than twenty-eight hundred strong, numbers of whom had been sold before the war from their native state to plantation regions farther south. The success of these efforts to recruit black men from the Union-occupied regions of the South tipped the demographic balance among black sailors.
