On their way to the river, Drusilla, Rosa, Bayard and Ringo have to move through a huge crowd of self-emancipated slaves, trying to make their way to the Union army on the other side of the river. They are described as "men carrying babies, women dragging children by the hand, and women with babies, and old ones pulling themselves along with sticks" (48). This group is being held away from the bridge by the Union cavalry.
