    A very interesting first person account of Freedman s Bureau field office duties and experiences Also, a very good overview of the program is given in the introduction Some attitudes may seem dated but, well, they are.

    Quite enlightening DeForest s observations of post Civil War policies, politics, people, and culture do much to explain the South and America we live in today.
