The Cotton Famine in the UK during the Americn Civil War

I am looking for any correspondence or reports of/from US African American private citizens who visited or were based in, Lancashire, England, during the American Civil War.

Thank you very much!

    Thanks for posting your query on History Hub!

    Hopefully a community member familiar with this history will be able to assist you with this question. Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that any records pertaining to these private African American citizens will be housed at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). NARA only houses official records that were generated by the various agencies of the United States Federal Government. The personal correspondence of private individuals will not be among these records.
