Here’s historian Edward Ayers speaking on Slavery and Religion in Richmond before and during the Civil War. This is really a good talk.
Here’s the video’s description: “One hundred and fifty years ago in April, Richmond was burning, the Civil War was ending, and over 3.9 million slaves had been declared freepersons. What was Richmond like in 1865 and in the years that followed? How did people of faith respond to the war and its aftermath? Dr. Ed Ayers, an American historian, professor, and president of the University of Richmond, enlightens us about this time in our history and the way it influences our present.”
