Author: E. Renee Ingram

Publisher: Willowbend Books

ISBN: 1-58549-018-0

Legislation enacted by both the General Assembly of Virginia and the Confederate Congress along with Confederate war records reflected the African American's participation, free and enslaved, to meet the Confederacy's agricultural, military, and technological demands.

Compiled from the records at the Library of Congress and the National Archives and Records Administration, In View of the Great Want of Labor includes a chronology of the Confederacy's Legislative Sessions and the Secret Sessions, regarding the employment of African Americans, free and enslaved, during the Civil War. Rare letters, photographs, newspaper advertisements, and a register of Free Negroes Enrolled and Detailed from May 1864 - January 1865, Bureau of Conscription, VA are included.

This unique reference book provides insight into extensive involvement and the role of African Americans in the South.
