This is a drawing of Freedman Town in North Bryan. This map is significant, as it could have symbolized the tension throughout the county and especially Millican with there being a free black settlement nearby. Many Blacks decided to remain in Millican although there was an established settlement for them. Many whites were probably outraged by both the settlement and the reamining blacks of Millican. Tension was thick.
