Sketches from the Life of a Free Black, In A Two-Story White House, North.
An anonymous female Afro-American living as a "free person of color" in a Northern city during the Civil War draws comparisons between her own position and that of her kinsmen in bondage. The comparison in her viewpoint reveals "freed men" in the North are viciously oppressed by the white majority. She believes the so-called "slaves" down South may even have it better. She gives many examples. This is a book every student of the Civil War should read.
