What is Freedom?
"On the evening of January 12, 1865, less than a
month after Union forces captured Savannah, Georgia, twenty leaders
of the city’s black community gathered for a discussion with General
William T. Sherman and Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton. The
conversation revealed that the black leaders brought out of slavery
a clear definition of freedom."
