Troubled Refuge: Struggling for Freedom in the Civil War
By Chandra Manning
From the author of What This Cruel War Was Over, a vivid portrait of the Union army’s escaped-slave refugee camps and how they shaped the course of emancipation and citizenship in the United States.
“As a huge fan of Chandra Manning’s incredible book What This Cruel War Was Over, I was eager to dive into her latest work, Troubled Refuge. This book brilliantly draws on the first-hand accounts of the men, women, and children who took their freedom into their own hands, escaping slavery for Union controlled refugee camps. The real power of this book to me was how Manning showed that the bold actions of these individuals forced the nation to grapple with questions regarding citizenship, care for refugees, and the role of the military – all issues with which the United States continues to struggle.” – Director of Programming, Callie Hawkins
