Enslaved People and Masters in Virginia: 1775 to 1865

ID : 922   
« back to classes page
This course will examine the ever-changing lives of enslaved people and their masters in Virginia from 1775 to 1865 as they found themselves transformed by powerful state and national events including changing economic conditions, forced western migrations and hardening of philosophical attitudes towards the institution of slavery itself. From 1861 to 1865 the bitterly divided nation committed itself to the destructive powers of civil war, in which 620,000 men died and countless towns and farmswere  destroyed. The Fifteenth Amendment was passed in 1865 ending slavery in the United States.
