The continuing preparation of a documentary history of the transition from slavery to freedom in the American South, 1861-1867. (36 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. The edition is a social history of emancipation in the words of emancipated slaves and their contemporaries. Five of the nine volumes of FREEDOM are complete (each 800-1,000 pages), and editorial work on the sixth is well advanced. In addition, the editors have published four volumes and eleven article-length documentary compilations for general audiences and use in the classroom, and the project's web site provides documents and interpretive material for students, teachers, and the general public. The present proposal is to complete and publish LAND AND LABOR, 1866-1867 (series 3, volume 2 of FREEDOM).
