Slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction

(p.45) Part II Slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction
Writing Appalachia
Theresa Lloyd
University Press of Kentucky

Discusses Appalachia’s African American citizens during the pre- and post-Civil War years. The presence of slavery and African Americans in the region has often been obscured by myths and incorrect assertions about the relative mildness of slavery in the mountain South. Yet, the African American community was very much a part of Appalachian culture and society, both during and after the Civil War. Their stories and the stories of Appalachian abolitionists seek to correct these myths and correctly inform of the region’s role during this tense time in American history.
