Probably many Americans believe that Union soldiers and Southern slaves rushed into one another’s arms in celebration as the boys in blue brought emancipation. This is very far from the truth. In fact, Union soldiers for the most part greeted Southern black people with hostility, exploitation, rape, robbery, and murder. The destruction of the South brought a terrible cost in suffering and morality to the black people, an atrocity that is just beginning to be recognized. Paul Graham has collected the testimony of South Carolina slaves of their experiences in the Union invasions. This material should be read by everybody who really wants to understand the War between the States.
