Freedmen Bureau Created
On March 3, 1865 the Congress established the Bureau of Freedmen, Refugees, and Abandoned Lands. The goal of the Bureau was to aid freed blacks. The Bureau, in the course of five years, issued twenty million rations, established 50 hospitals, set up 4,330 schools and helped establish the first Black colleges.
