"Report of Plantations leased…"


One of the major activities of the Freedmen's Bureau was the leasing of abandoned and confiscated property. Although their numbers were small, freedmen who had means were allowed to lease land ranging from 10 to 100 acres. This report records vital information about the owners of land held by the Freedmen's Bureau in New Hanover and Brunswick Counties, North Carolina.
