Emancipation and Slavery on my friends’ blogs and the U.S. Postal Service

I thought that y’all would find the good map on Kevin Levin’s blog in regard to slaves who lived in areas where the Emancipation Proclamation could directly affect the enslaved populace.

 

Secondly, my friend, Nicole Moore imparts feelings regarding how we discuss the tasks assigned to enslaved persons and the language of the 19th century over at Interpreting Slave Life.

Finally, starting today, Wednesday, January 2, 2013, the United States Postal Service will be offering a commemorative stamp for the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. Later this year the USPS will release ones for Rosa Parks and for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
