Application for pardon, Allegany County, 1864


Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



Application has been made to the Governor for the pardon of JAMES HARRIS, a colored man, convicted in the Alleghany County Circuit Court for assisting his children to escape from Bondage and sentenced to the Penitentiary for six and a half years. It will hardly fail of success as the peculiar institution is looked upon in a different light from the time when the sentence was passed.
