Free At Last brings together some of the most remarkable letters ever written by Americans. Made widely available for the first time, these letters, personal testimonies, official transcripts, and other records convey the struggle of black men and women to overthrow the slave system, to aid the Union cause as laborers and soldiers, and to give meaning to their newly won freedom in a war-torn nation.
