dc.description Letter dated February 1, 1864, to Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War, directing a transport be sent to the Island of Vache to rescue the 450 freed slaves who were recruited to settle there. Small pox and mismanagement by a government-appointed manager contributed to the colony's failure. The transport ship dispatched by President Lincoln picked up only 368 survivors. en_US
