Storyboard Text

  • How the Freedman's Bureau came about...
  • What are we going to do with the land?! And how will we rebuild the South?
  • Don't worry! We will give food, supplies, schools, and land to poor whites AND former slaves! I call it the Freedman's Bureau!
  • From the perspective of a poor white citizen:
  • Yes, it is so great! We get things that help us carry-out our everyday lives even though we are low income.
  • The Freedman's Bureau is amazing for me and my family!
  • A group of former slaves helped by receiving food and housing:
  • My son and I were once slaves living on a plantation and now we have a lease on a lovely home in this neighborhood. We owe it all to the Freedman's Bureau!
  • The government also helps us by giving us food and things we need to survive. The Freedman's Bureau has also been able to provide me with an education!
  • A white family impacted by the Freedman's Bureau in more ways than one:
  • These are the beds that my siblings and I have been graciously given by the government.
  • Another southerner who has a very different opinion on the Freedman's Bureau:
  • This Bureau is INSANITY! It is quite threatening to me and my way of life! This is the North trying to give away all of our land to those slaves!
  • The result:
  • In the end, the Freedman's Bureau was slightly more successful than the Wade-Davis Bill that the Republicans wanted to pass. The bureau definitely had its good sides but there were many differing opinions and most high/middle class Southerners disagreed with the plan and it made them even angrier at the North. They were so angry, who knows what could've happened if the Bureau had lasted for too long. It might have driven them off the edge yet again.
