As Genealogy Researchers we are called upon to go back in time. That means that we are looking at the history surrounding our ancestors. This is especially true of those who looking for People of Color in the Americas. While looking for Slave ancestors we want to see what their condition was prior to or after the Civil War. What was going on politically? Many factors depend on where they were located during and after the Civil War.
