Freedmen and Southern Society Project

Preparation for publication of volumes 8 and 9 of Freedom: A Documentary History of Emancipation, 1861-1867. (24 months)

The Freedmen and Southern Society Project is editing Freedom: A Documentary History of Emancipation, 1861-1867, a nine-volume documentary history of the transition from slavery to freedom in the U.S. South. The edition documents a critical juncture in American history: the moment four million slaves gained their freedom. It constitutes a social history in the words of emancipated slaves and their contemporaries. Seven volumes will be in print by the beginning of the proposed grant period; the eighth will be completed during the first year of the proposed grant; and the final volume will be the work of years 2 and 3 of the grant period. The editors have published four additional volumes for general audiences and use in the classroom. The project's website provides both documents and interpretive material.
