Description

This publication includes details from all the surviving applications for accounts in the North Carolina branches of the Freedman’s Savings and Trust. Although chartered by Congress in 1865 to assist newly freed slaves and African American soldiers at the end of the Civil War, the bank was not restricted to free persons of color. You will find records of people, regardless of skin color or circumstances, who created accounts in the North Carolina chapters of the bank as well as churches, social organizations, and companies.
