Full-Length Portraits Of An Unidentified Man Woman And Child

In 1861, there were nearly four million slaves in bondage throughout the South, almost half the population.  Beginning in 1863, approximately 180,000 free blacks and escaped slaves — more than 85 percent of the eligible population — served in the Union Army and Navy.  And in 1865, after four years of deadly struggle, slavery was abolished forever in America.  What had started as a struggle to preserve the Union became a war of emancipation without an equal in history for its moral scope~
