schema:description "The three essays in this volume present an introduction to history of the emancipation of the slaves during the Civil War. The first essay traces the destruction of slavery by discussing the shift from a war for the Union to a war against slavery. The slaves are shown to have shaped the destiny of the nation through their determination to place their liberty on the wartime agenda. The second essay examines the evolution of freedom in occupied areas of the lower and upper South. The struggle of those freed to obtain economic independence in difficult wartime circumstances indicates conflicting conceptions of freedom among former slaves and slaveholders, Northern soldiers and civilians. The third essay demonstrates how the enlistment and military service of nearly 200,000 slaves hastened the transformation of the war into a struggle for universal liberty, and how this experience shaped the lives of former slaves long after the war had ended."@en ;

Slaves No More: Three Essays on Emancipation and the Civil War

Drawn from Freedom: A Documentary History of Emancipation, which has been been described as “this generation's most significant encounter with the American past,“ Slaves No More includes three essays on the destruction of slavery and the redefinition of freedom in the midst of the nation's bloodiest conflict. Each essay addresses a central question in the study of the Civil War: How did slaves gain their freedom? What did freedom mean? How did wartime military service reshape the lives of African Americans?

Emphasizing the active role of slaves and former slaves in remaking a war for the Union into a war for freedom, the essays demonstrate that emancipation transformed the lives of all Americans, white and black.

Slaves No More is available in paperback and is widely used in the classroom as an overview of emancipation during the Civil War.

243 pp.  Table of contents.
