Freedmen Slave Narrative                 Denied Freedmen

To the Readers: You may find some terms or phrases that you find offensive. The narratives have been transcribed as written, although they contain statements that may not be politically correct for the year 2000, they were terms used in the early 1900 (and even today) by all races.I am proud to say I am a Freedmen descendant, therefore to change their words would be a disservice to them, myself and to those who seek the truth.

Transcribed by Eleanor Wyatt : The narratives speaks to being freed after the civil war, but I must say that as a Freedmen descendant, the spirit that drives me to search, is a spirit of freedom, A freedom inherited from my ancestors. Thus I choose to believe that my ancestor's bodies may have been held in bondage, but they retained their freedom of mind
