Re: Or ..Those who owned slaves or those who did n
Edward, you demographics on 1860 Texas are off a little. Slaves were numerous from NE Texas all the way to SE Texas. It is true there were not many slaves elsewhere, but East Texas was the most populated region of the state. I cannot imagine the citizens would have voted to be a Free State prior to 1860 had that been a choice. The slave population was 31% in 1860.
