Confederate Slave Impressment in the Upper South

This chapter discusses how slave impressment in late 1862 and throughout 1863 disrupted a profitable market for hired agricultural slaves in both Virginia and North Carolina. Slave impressment exacerbated labor shortages prompted by enlistment and conscription; it also exacerbated conflicts over who should contribute most heavily to the war effort.
