Abstract

This panel will examine instances of Reconstruction era violence in the American South. Together, these presentations offer insights into a volatile period when former Confederates and a former enslaved population struggled over key social, economic, and political issues. Panelists will examine the United States Army's and the Freedmen's Bureau's interventions in their respective roles to suppress remnants of the Southern rebellion and to help African Americans transition to freedom.
