David, the "little contraband", came to us in 1862 at Ft. Cass as a servant. He scalded his arms in a camp kettle, having them badly blistered. When they healed, they came out white. He came to me and said : "If I scalded me all over, would I be a white man?"
David was of the First Massachusetts Heavy Artillery, formerly the Fourteenth Infantry. No known last name nor what company he was servant in.
