Coastal Heritage Article on Emancipation Day

Just posted: A fabulous article about "Emancipation Day: The Freed People of Port Royal," vol. 27 #1 of Coastal Heritage – Fall 2012.  According to author John Tibbetts, "On Emancipation Day–January 1, 1863–sea islanders of the Beaufort District realized what they must do to help defeat the Confederacy and keep their freedom."
