The Choctaw wiki page has near the same number sourced. If the information is not correct I’d contact the wikipedia page for the correction.
(Native Americans in the American Civil War) wiki page.-This is the source listed for the number of 6,000, I always make sure I include the info in its entire paragraph when I post, listed with sources.
The Choctaw owned nearly 6000 slaves. Museum of The Red River is the source given on wiki.
Beginning in 1894, the Dawes Commission was established to register Choctaw and other families of the Indian Territory, so that the former tribal lands could be properly distributed among them. The final list included 18,981 citizens of the Choctaw Nation, 1,639 Mississippi Choctaw, and 5,994 former slaves, most held by Choctaws in the Indian/Oklahoma Territory.

We cannot correct numbers all over the web or in books. I can only post info with sources where I find the info. Unfortunately once something is posted on TUMBLR and reblogged there is No possible way to correct anything…a site flaw. Unfortunately I don’t have time to analyze every number or the info I post here, I wouldn’t have time to work! I can only post sources and let people take it from there. Thanks for the correction.
