The Price of Freedom is a two volume anthology of 48 articles addressing the political, social, and military aspects of slavery and the Civil War. This volume, The Demise of Slavery, addresses abolition and emancipation and the various roles played by African Americans, men and women, in this tragic chapter of the nation's history.
This anthology focuses on six aspects of the political and military processes through which slavery was abolished: the rise of abolitionism in the North, the recruitment of black troops, their performance in battle, race as a factor in combat, women and the war effort, and black soldiers fighting for the Confederacy.
