Slavery supported the Confederacy, while the abolition of slavery sanctified the Union cause. This book provides firsthand accounts of former slaves who write of their experiences before, during, and shortly after, the war. Sources include Booker T. Washington, Susie King Taylor (who escaped from slavery and became a nurse), and William H. Robinson (who writes of his experiences as one of the very few people to have served on both sides of the war).
