Sick From Freedom

Friday, May 17, 2013 12:00p

Sick from Freedom: African-American Illness and Suffering during the Civil War and Reconstruction

Freedmen who fled from slavery during and after the Civil War did not expect that their flight toward freedom would lead to sickness, disease, and death. As Jim Downs reveals in Sick from Freedom, the war produced the largest biological crisis of the 19th century. A book signing will follow the program.
