North Carolina Field Offices, Offices of Staff Officers, Chief Quartermaster and Disbursing Officer, Letters Sent, Volume (61)

About the Project

The Bureau of Refugees, Freemen, and Abandoned Lands, often referred to as the Freedmen’s Bureau, was established on March 3, 1865. The duties of the Freedmen’s Bureau included supervision of all affairs relating to refugees, freedmen, and the custody of abandoned lands and property. These documents come from the Records of the Field Offices for the State of North Carolina, Series 3.3: Offices of Staff Officers: Chief Quartermaster and Disbursing Officer.

Please help us transcribe these records to learn more about the experiences of formerly enslaved men and women in North Carolina during the Reconstruction Era.
