This coming Saturday (July 18th) at 7PM, Ranger Mike Gorman will be presenting a program on the Freedmen’s Bureau and the freed people who occupied Chimborazo Hospital in the aftermath of the Civil War.

For a preview check Mike out here: http://ideastations.org/radio/news/chimborazo-hospital-after-civil-war. Further details are available on the Richmond National Battlefield website.

Again, I urge people to look into what the NPS is doing already to address Reconstruction in post-Civil War America.
