    In the years following the Civil War, as with whites, there was a great migration of blacks to new western states—between and aboutmigrated. The left hand column, under General Nansouty, with Morand's infantry and four brigades of cavalry, would cut off the Russian advance guard. Black militiamen fought at Lexington and Concord. When George Washington took command of the Continental Army inhe recommended to the Continental Congress, which agreed, that freed African Americans should no longer be recruited into the army. The new streets in the neighborhood were named after the capitals of Europe of the time, including Naples, Turin and Parma. Bush appointed him as Secretary of State, the first African American to hold the office.

    The commercial and financial activity of the city took place on the right bank between the Madeleine and the Temple, where the stock market and banks were located, while the Grand Boulevards, built on the old ramparts of the city, became the home of the city's new theaters and restaurants, and the place to promenade. Once he was settled in Moscow Napoleon attempted to enter negotiations with the Tsar. He was given days to prepare for his trial and was permitted some semblance of dignity at the end. By 2pm the leading French troops had run into the outposts of General Neverovsky's division, which had been posted south-west of Smolensk at Krasnyi to guard against a possible French attack. By the end of the battle the Russians had been forced out of all of their original positions in the centre and left of the line and the French had captured the fortifications of the Grand Redoubt and the Bagration fleches. Strawder realized how serious the situation was, noting the number of pistols and knives his fellow volunteers had in their possession.

    Escaped slaves and free blacks were drawn to the west for the same reasons whites were: the promise of riches in the Gold Rush, cheap land, and a chance for a better life. After the battle of Malojaroslavetz Kutuzov had decided to pull back if the French attempted to advance, so the road to Kaluga was actually open. Oudinot and St. David P.
