Thank you very much for providing the background on this interesting story! If I could trouble you again for the information on the servant with the 29th Pennsylvania, it would be much appreciated. It is another one that I have not come across before. At the moment, I have confirmed 70 black slaves with the Confederate army, and 13 black servants with the Union army at Gettysburg. These few instances out of several hundred, and probably thousands who were at the battle and not counted on muster rolls. A black civilian also fought on Culp's Hill, as separately authenticated by two Union soldiers, one in the 5th Ohio and the other in the 109th Pennsylvania (these units were adjacent to each other). At the same time I am compiling the duties (when known) of black slaves and servants, the most common being a personal servant to an individual, followed by a cook to individuals or to units. It is just one interest among many. I am also compiling a list of battlefield trophies, that is, items picked up from the enemy on the field, and William F. Bloor just made this list too.
