Abstract

Established in early 1865, the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands—more commonly known as the Freedmen's Bureau—assumed the task of overseeing the transition from slavery to freedom in the post–Civil War South. This book explains fully the Bureau's relationships with freedwomen, freedmen and black communities.
