TROUBLED REFUGE: Struggling for Freedom in the Civil War
In this study, Manning looks at the escaped slaves refugee camps behind Union lines during the Civil War. These camps raised for the first time humanitarian questions about refugees in wartime and legal questions about civil and military authority, with which we still wrestle. Integrating a wealth of new findings, she casts a light on what it was like to escape slavery. Photos & maps.
