It analyzes the appeal of Rochester to African Americans, and reviews the region's history of religious revival and social reform. It describes Cecelia's marriage to her second husband, William Larrison, and her life in Rochester during the Civil War. William enlisted in the Army in late 1863, and the chapter also explores the history of African Americans' Civil War military service.
