Berlin uses letters, personal testimonies, official transcripts and other records to unravel the history of emancipation, explaining how people with little power and few weapons secured freedom. Vividly demonstrating how emancipation transformed the lives of both black and white people, this volume represents a collection of some of the most remarkable correspondence ever written. Edited by legendary author Ira Berlin.
