One of these contributions was James Barbot Jr. who wrote the “General Observations on the Management of Slaves.” Resistant among the captives did occurred aboard ships as Barbot described one of his personal account of the revolt aboard Don Carlos. He argued that mistreatment of the African captives was the main reason they became desperate to escape the imprisonment.

Stanton and the African American leaders, mostly Methodist and Baptist preachers, to solve the problem of the former slaves and had asked them for their opinion about the manner that they think they could be able to take care of themselves.

At first slavery was helping the South win the war because the chattels were doing all the white men’s farming and factory work, which meant the white men were available for fighting in the war (Holzer).

Slaves also had more motivation because they were fighting against their former masters (Bodenner). If their former masters had treated them horribly, the freed slaves will have a greater motivation to win the war against them. Former slaves were also allowed to join the army after they escaped servitude ("Abraham Lincoln Issues the Emancipation Proclamation: January 1, 1863.").
