The Daily Dispatch: November 19, 1860., [Electronic resource], Excitement in
Lancaster County, Va. (search)
Excitement in Lancaster County,Va. --A great deal of excitement prevails in Lancaster county, Va., owing to some revelations made by a free negro. The Fredericksburg Herald says: A slave was first arrested for making sundry assumptions of freedom "now that Massa Lincoln was elected," but expressing penitence, and stating that he was "in liquor" at the time, he was discharged. After wards, a free negro made revelations to the effect that the negroes from the upper and lower ends of the county were to meet at Lancaster Court House at a given time, break open the jail, seize the fire-arms therein, and commence an indiscriminate slaughter of men, women and children, and that means of their escape was provided by a vessel lying in the creek. Two gentlemen came up from Lancaster county on Wednesday night, on their way to Richmond for the purpose of procuring arms.
