Surviving Wartime Emancipation: African Americans and the Cost of Civil War

Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics 39 (1):21-27 (2011)
The U.S. Civil War chained slave emancipation to war's violence, destruction and deprivation. The resulting health crisis, including illness, injury, and trauma, had immediate and lasting consequences. This essay explores the impact of ideas about race on the U.S. military's health care provisions and treatment of former slaves, both civilians and soldiers
