There are only a few papers from the Civil War era, one of which is a list of
slaves and their values. These slaves presumably belonged to James Harrington.
Pinckney was paroled during 1865 and signed an oath of allegiance that same year.
After the war, the Harringtons continued to grow cotton using freedmen for labor.
There are numerous agreements between them and their former slaves to work the
land for food, clothing, shelter, and a percentage of the crops. There are detailed
lists of time missed by various workers.
