Merrill Charles A. Deposition of Charles A. Merrill.  The Federal Army passed through and occupied this section of the State about the 16th or 18th of March 1862, and the negroes showing a disposition to leave their homes, were reduced in value.  I think it was best to sell negroes at this time.  I continued to sell negroes at every opportunity even until I sold some as low as $500 apiece.  Negroes remained at a high valuation south of the Federal line.  I knew this having sent some to Atlanta where I sold them in March 1862.
