Abstract:
A freedom offered to slaves perhaps lesser known than the Emancipation Proclamation is religious expression. Contraband camps, established by Union troops for former slaves, provided a way for former slaves to openly express Christian faith. Along with African American religious leaders such as James Walker Hood, they helped establish the African Methodist Episcopal Zion church. As for churches such as AMEZ, they also provided a sanctuary from racism and sowing ground for the seeds of political representation.
