Chronological notes of references to slaves or slavery, slave auctions, runaway slaves, Jonathan Walker, crimes committed by or legal and court proceedings involving blacks, with name of paper, date, page number, and brief description.  Listing primarily covers the Pensacola Gazette (1821-1858) but includes the Pensacola Florida Democrat (1846-1851), the West Florida Times (1857), the Pensacola Weekly Observer (1861), and the Santa Rosa News-Boy (1863).  While comprehensive, these only represent those newspapers and issues examined by the author; additional issues certainly exist not covered by the list.
