historywithted's Instagram Photo - Another key moment came in February of 1865 when Chief Justice Salmon P Chase admitted John Rock as a lawyer before the United States Supreme Court. It is a noteworthy achievement because less than 20 years before Rock along with every other African American was denied eligibility for citizenship by the United States Supreme Court in the Dred Scott decision. 
That did not mean that things were all sunshine and roses for the African American community. They still could not vote in most of the states, a virulent kind of racism still permeated society but there were real gains that were made.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - The election of the new congress marks a new era in race relations in the United States. For the first African Americans were allowed into the gallery of the congress. They were also invited to official White House functions. Other key legislation passed by the new congress included prohibiting exclusion of witnesses from federal court on the basis of race. Prohibited segregation on the basis of race in the District of Columbia. Repealed an 1810 law prohibiting African Americans from carrying​the mail. At the state level and number of states repealed what were known as Black Laws. These were laws that discriminated against African Americans in a number ways including using public transportation.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - The Election of 1864 gave the Republican Party massive majorities in the Senate and House of Representatives. The men elected would not have taken their seats until well into 1865. At this point the 13th Amendment had stalled in the house initially but Lincoln threw his support behind the act and targeted several lame duck Congressmen to support passing the amendment. After the passage of the 13th amendment in Congress all of the states in the republic with the exception of New Jersey, Kentucky and Delaware quickly ratified the 13th Amendment. The returning former slaves states ratified the 13th as a condition of readmission to the republic. The cancer of slavery had finally been excited from the union. In the remaining slave states new Constitutional Conventions were held and new constitutions that outlawed slavery adopted. All of the slave states except Kentucky adopted new constitutions. Kentucky refused to either abolish slavery or ratify the 13 amendment.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - There were consistent efforts from 1862 onwards to give African Americans equal rights in the United States. This was opposed by Democrats and Conservative Republicans who want to gradually approach the topic. Abolitionist and Radical republicans persisted and eventually the key achievement of their efforts was the passage of the Civil War / Civil Rights Amendments the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the United States Constitution. These amendments abolished slavery, granted equal protection and enfranchised African American men.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - William Sherman before this had issued his own statement on land redistribution. It’s ironic that Sherman was deeply racist and had little regard for the well-being of African Americans. He mainly issued his settlement to rid himself of the thousands of Contraband slaves that attached themselves to his field army. Sherman met with local leaders in Georgia who expressed their desire for land citing that with land they would be able to care for themselves and not need to follow his army. On January 16th 1865, he set aside a large portion of the Georgia South Carolina low country for resettlement by freedmen. Promising each 40 acres of land. Sherman granted them a possessory title until Congress issued a final settlement.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - Lincoln further added to the confusion by saying in 1862 that property could be seized for the duration of the owners life and not indefinitely. This raised the question of whether or not African Americans who came into possession of land would allowed to retain possession of that land. To this Lincoln later said in 1863 that any Confederate who took the oath of allegiance would have his property returned to him. In 1862 radical Republican George Washington Julian proposed a modified version of the Homestead Act for the Africans Americans in the south. His bill proposed giving heads of households 40-80 acres of land. This bill failed in congress. Congress instead created the Freedmen's​ Bureau in 1865. Which stipulated that any Freedman could lease abandoned or confiscated land with an option to buy it after 3 years.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - The great obstacle to this was that many in the United States opposed handing over land to the Contraband slaves. Speculators also known as carpet baggers wanted to exploit the land and they want to maintain a large pool of cheap labor. They did not want to compete with a African Americans. They did not want an African American class of landed yeoman farmers. They wanted Laborers. Unfortunately the eventual proportional split was 80-20 between speculators and contraband slaves.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - The major question confronting the United States government was whether or not to give land to the Contraband slaves. This would have alleviated the burden placed on others supervising the contrabands in the future. Abolitionist and Radical republicans argued in favor of this. Saying that land would​ give them the means to support themselves. By the end of the war 1/4 of the land under control of the United States military was being farmed by African Americans independently of oversight. 
Most interestingly they were settled on land formerly owned Jefferson Davis and his family. African Americans spoke up with ardent vigor saying that land was the best solution to the problem. This was seen as the best way to ease the community into the next chapter of their lives.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - Not all of the Contraband slaves fared poorly. Those with technical skills were generally better off than those who were field hands. Contraband slaves on plantations overseen by the government fared a little better than those who were on plantations overseen by speculators or former slave owners. 
The situation got worst as the war went on and the healthier men of military age left the contraband camps to serve in the United States Army. This left older, infirm men and adolescent boys with women and young children to perform the full duties of a plantation. There was also a shockingly high mortality rate in the Contraband camps of 25%. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #ushistory #blogger #Contraband #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #uscivilwar #camps #confederates #confederacy #slaves #africanamericanhistory #blackhistory

He also stated that idleness and vagrancy were crimes. He forced the contraband slaves to sign up for work in his jurisdiction. They had to sign up with an employer for a year at a time, in return for wages, food and housing. The ways were paid out to the Slaves they were deducted for clothing, medical care and other surcharges. They ended up working for room and board which was to​ them as not much different from slavery. Abolitionist cried foul, pointing out the exploitive nature of Banks system.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - Contraband Slaves were also put to work on abandoned plantations growing cash crops that were sent north to furl the United States economy. Many speculators from the United States who were only interested in turning a profit tried to make as much money as possible off of these plantations using contraband slaves. 
Some plantation owners signed loyalty pledges in order to keep possession of their land. They along with the profiteers from the free states were not concerned with the plight of the Contraband Slaves working on the plantations.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - Eventually a system was established where the escaped slaves now known as Contraband of war or Contraband Slaves were placed in specific camps with soldiers to guard them, they were allotted food, clothing and Missionary groups visited to establish schools and churches. 
The United States very quickly organize the contraband slaves in to units that performed the necessary non-combat duties to keep an army in the field operating. In theory the Contraband Slaves were free and had to be paid a wage but often they were given assignments and put to work doing what the army needed with no input.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - During the course of the United States Civil War many slaves in the Confederate States took it upon themselves​ to escape and leave their plantations. This was done either when their masters took flight and became refugees or when United States troops were near. The presence of escaped slaves created new concerns for the United States to address. This was not done uniformly but piecemeal.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - Towards the end of the war in a one of the most remarkable and shocking events. The Confederate Congress approved enlisting slaves and free men into the Confederate Army. After very heated debates it was approved. The Confederate Congress did not offer freedom to these men there was no real incentive. 
Howell Cobb of Georgia pointed out the irony of a slave based society arming slaves to fight in a war to preserve slavery. Cobb said “the day you make soldiers out of them is the beginning of the end of our Revolution. If slaves will make good soldiers our whole theory of slavery is wrong.” If slaves make good soldiers you cannot pretend that they are not really people. 
As Richmond fell residents and United States soldiers were greeted with the sight of African American men drilling in the streets. It was one of the ironies of United States history. 
The civil war was the greatest watershed for African American history. 4 million people were freed from slavery. The claim to citizenship was established.

The loss of so many slaves either to contraband status or to the United States Army sent a clear message that change was coming rapidly and signaled the breakdown of the slave state social structure.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - These changes brought about a fundamental shift in the nature of chattel slavery. With the home guard slave patrol units having to also requisition critical supplies from the civilian population, look out for deserters and with United States Armies pushing deeper into the Confederate States. Many slaves simply left their plantations or industrial centers. They could not be supervised or controlled as before the war. The phenomenon of contraband slaves making it to the United States military forces could not be stopped. The refuging of so many made escape easier than ever. The slaves understood that and expertly exploited it. Their masters could do little to stop it.

historywithted's Instagram Photo - War time service also made the case for African American citizenship that much stronger. Military ​service in wartime served as a voucher for citizenship. More importantly it gave African Americans a direct role in ending slavery. 
In the Confederate States the war also brought about changes in the institution of slavery. Slave labor kept the Confederate States going. It freed a disproportional amount of men for military service while the economy still functioned as before. Many slaves also were assigned to supporting roles in the Confederate Army. Working as wagon drivers, cooks performing all of the tasks and duties that made warfare possible. They also performed new industrial tasks as the Confederate States dough to create the material necessary for war.

They also performed new industrial tasks as the Confederate States dough to create the material necessary for war. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #ushistory #blogger #citizenship #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #uscivilwar #confederates #confederacy #slaves #wartimeservice #impressment #warduties

historywithted's Instagram Photo - Fort Pillow Massacre
On the other side the Confederate States did not offer quarter to African American soldiers who tried to surrender. They were known to summarily execute African American soldiers. They most notorious incident of this is Fort Pillow where men under the command of Nathan Bedford Forrest massacred African Americans. They Crater was another instance of African American soldiers being massacred after a battle. Confederate soldiers very systematically sought out the wounded and those trying to escape and executed them. They also sold African Americans back in to slavery.

New Market Heights in 1864 the most of these battles saw a number of African Americans receive the Medal of Honor for their actions.
