Freedman's Bureau Bulletin
Keeping citizens informed daily (November edition)
- "My family had almost nothing to eat because the crops did not grow well this year. Thank goodness for the Bureau!"
- "My boy was hit in the head by the cow's hoof and the doctors were able to help him so that he would not go blind".
- We only had a few clothes for our children since it was winter time and they needed shoes and a new coat. Now they will be okay for the winter time."
- "I was looking at 5 different places for a job but no one was hiring any blacksmiths. I found a livery stable that needed one man.
Customer after customer had only great things to say about the services and how their lives has been changed for the better.
Ban the Freedman's Bureau!
Andrew Johnson, the Vice President, will use his powers to insure that the bill renew the Freedman's Bureau's existence will be vetoed. By banning the Freedman's Bureau, people will know who is in charge of the local areas. Sure we have our problems but we do not want this group here anymore.
Write to your congressman and help to support the Vice President in his effort to veto any new bills to renew the funding of this agency.
