The Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands...
...often referred to as the Freedmen's ​Bureau was established in the War Department by an act of March 3, 1865. 


The Bureau supervised all relief and educational activities relating to refugees and freedmen, including issuing rations, clothing and medicine.

The Bureau also assumed custody of confiscated lands or property in the former Confederate States, border states, District of Columbia, and Indian Territory.

The bureau records were created or maintained by bureau headquarters, the assistant commissioners and the state superintendents of education and included personnel records and a variety of standard reports concerning bureau programs and conditions in the states.
