Two Dynamic Women: Sylvia and Mary Jane Conner

Record #:
Scholars of nineteen century African American history face the challenges of finding first-person accounts; they therefore rely on peripheral sources such as the correspondences of Private Henry A. Clapp who was stationed in New Bern from 1862-1863. Clapp provides detailed accounts of Sylvia and Mary Jane Conner, two New Bern African American women that changed Clapp's perceptions on slavery.
