Chandra Manning on Troubled Refuge

Here’s Professor Chandra Manning giving a talk based on her book, Troubled Refuge: Struggling for Freedom in the Civil War, which discusses Union refugee camps and the struggles refugees faced. The video’s description reads, ” Chandra Manning talked about her book Troubled Refuge: Struggling for Freedom in the Civil War, in which she recalls the Union Army’s slave-refugee camps, which, according to the author, were composed of between 12 to 15 percent of the Confederacy’s slave population. The author also reports on life in the camps and the risks that many slaves made to get behind Union lines.”
