After the Civil War, the slaves were freed. However, many were subjected to tremendous intimidation. Most had no place to live except the old slave cabins. They had no clothes to wear. They had little money. The former masters needed cheap labor and they had desperate people on their hands. In this situation, the Federal Government created the Freedmen's Bureau.
