The Slave Claims Commission was created by the War Department in late 1863, in order to compensate the owners of slaves who enlisted in the Union Army. Only Union-controlled slave states were eligible--Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, Missouri, West Virginia, and Tennessee. This first volume in a proposed series of books transcribing and abstracting the records of the Slave Claims Commission, presents the claims registered by the Delaware Slave Claims Commission.
