George, cant remember who wanted info on Black Confederates but here are two more, one of which went north as a POW as stated by Union receiving authorities at City Point VA. These men were listed as assistant cooks for the 23rd Arkansas Infantry and were captured at Port Hudson at its surrender. They do not list him by name but acknowledge one went north to prison. Neither of these slaves' masters were in the 23rd Arkansas so they did not go just to be near their master Bob Belser and Andrew McDermott. Neither have a CSR however.
