Biography: 

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 and women carrying babies and dragging older children by the hand, old men and women on improvised sticks and crutches" (102-3). This group is being held away from the bridge by Union soldiers.
