The Memphis Appeal, Aug. 25, 1867, reports that the "Negroes of Atlanta" have formed a base ball club "dressed in red pants and sky-blue jackets."

The Charleston Daily News, Aug. 17, 1867 picks up an Augusta (GA) Constitutionalist item about this team visiting Augusta, arrayed in "red pantaloons" with "sundry spangles," and notes that Charleston has a colored team also.
