The completion of series 3, volume 2, Land and Labor, 1866-1867, and initial preparation for series 4, volume 1, Violence, Law, and Justice. (24 months)

The Freedmen and Southern Society Project is editing Freedom: A Documentary History of Emancipation, 1861-1867, a multi-volume documentary history of the transition from slavery to freedom in the U.S. South. Five of a projected nine volumes (each 800-1,000 pages in length) are complete, and a sixth is underway. In addition, the editors have prepared several publications for general audiences and for use in the classroom; these include a 570-page abridgment of the first four volumes of Freedom, a collection of essays drawn from the same volumes, a documentary volume on African-American family life, a volume on the black military experience during the Civil War, and eleven article-length collections of documents. The project's web site, which went online in 1997, has been designated one of the best sites for education in the humanities.
