Keeping citizens informed daily

Freedman's Bureau

It's coming to a town near you...a Freedman's Bureau! Now all recently freed slaves will be able to get money to start businesses and make a living on their own terms.

Keeping the Black codes

Slavery may be over but we have the Black Codes. The Black Codes are meant to keep law and order in our state. These laws will insure that the white citizens will feel safe in their community. The Black Codes stated that colored people will need to do the following:

1) Cannot vote

2) Cannot own any property

3) Can be employed in specific jobs

4) ???

If you see any colored men or women not obeying these Codes, let the police know right away.
