Steven Hahn's Southern Slaves: The Civil War
Greetings Civil War Researchers:
We all are aware of slavery uprisings from Pointe Coupee in Louisiana to Vesey's in South Carolina. The University of Pennsylvania's Steven Hahn's presentation of the direct involvement of slaves in their liberation during the Civil War is a fascinating history. Hahn magnifies Bennie McRae's research, which documents American slaves as freedom fighters.
Steven Hahn's lecture entitled "The Greatest Slave Rebellion in Modern History: ?Southern Slaves in the American Civil War" is presented by Southernspaces.org. The URL link below will take you to the video lecture.
