The Freedmen's Bureau

The Freedmen's Bureau
Inadequate funds and less than zealous advocacy plagued the progress of the Freedmen's Bureau during Reconstruction. Even though advancement was made with the establishment of schools, one of the bureau's biggest failures was its inability to distribute abandoned land to freedmen.

Library of Congress summary: "Man representing the Freedman's Bureau stands between armed groups of Euro-Americans and Afro-Americans." Illustrated in: Harper's weekly, July 25, 1868, p. 473.
