Freedmen's Bureau, Miscellaneous Records

In 1865 the U. S. Federal Government established the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands to help freed slaves integrate themselves into society. Freed slaves were re-connected to lost family members, schools were created, help was given in obtaining food and health care, and freed slaves were given legal advocacy in court cases.

Below are several miscellaneous records from the Freedmen's Bureau.

  • Madison Johnson, Register of Complaints, 1868
