Wednesday, November 11, 1863, Lincoln writes to Postmaster General Montgomery Blair, who forwarded a letter from John Crisfield, of Maryland. Crisfield complained about the actions of federal troops during the recent election. Crisfield wrote, "The interference of the military has frustrated the popular will, and placed men in power, who could not have been chosen at any fair election." Lincoln seeks proof of the alleged abuse and assures Blair that he "will call . . . to account" any military personnel who "violated, or transcended his orders."

When men got paid, they also visited a village east of where the railroad bent. Cabins had been built using army supplies. Negroes worked there cooking and keeping the village supplied. Some women reserved themselves for officers. Others served enlisted. No prostitute did double duty. No one crossed the line. At pay time, lines grew long, and men fought each other for a place. The average fee for a poke was three dollars. " Journal of a Cavalry Bugler, p. 163

"When Cornelia closed her eyes, horror crept in. Memories became vivid. Sinking into silence made consciousness quiver. No one spoke, except memory. No logic touched her. Emotion grabbed attention. She found herself trembling with frustration and anger. Being still and alone was different from being still before. Sights appeared that should stay buried. The sound of gunfire riddled her thoughts, and she jumped up to pace. Then Cornelia went out and shopped for two suits of strong clothing, shoes and leggings, just to prepare. She paid a fabulously high price but felt ready to return to duty at any time." An Imperfect Union, p. 105

The Laing Middle School of Science and Technology in Mount Pleasant, S.C., started because of Cornelia Hancock. In 1866 she traveled south and with help from locals, the Pennsylvania Abolitionist Society, and the Friends Association for the Aid and Elevation of the Freedmen of Philadelphia, she set up a Freedman school, holding the first class in a Presbyterian Church, riddled with bullets to a group of about 50 students.
