Too Great a Burden to Bear: The Struggle and Failure of the Freedmen's Bureau in Texas

Too Great a Burden to Bear: The Struggle and Failure of the Freedmen's Bureau in Texas

This work focuses on Bureau agents at a more personal level. The answers illuminate who officials believed qualified-or not-to oversee the freedpeople's transition to freedom. Officials in Texas desired those able to meet emancipation's challenges. That meant northern-born, mature, white men from the middle and upper-middle class, and generally with military experience.
