Days of jubilee: the meanings of emancipation and total war [The civil war and reconstruction era, 1845-1877]
Blight, David W.
  • Presents a lecture with professor David Blight about the process of emancipation after the passage of the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863.

In the end, ten percent of Union soldiers would be African American.
