The Papers of Frederick Law Olmsted, Volume 2

Slavery and the South, 1852–1857

For decades Frederick Law Olmsted (1822–1903) designed parks and park systems across the United States, leaving an enduring legacy of designed public space that is enjoyed, studied, and protected today. His plans and professional correspondence offer a rich source for understanding his remarkable contribution to the quality of urban life in this country and the development of the profession of landscape architecture. Olmsted's writings also provide a unique record of society and politics in post–Civil War America. Historians, landscape architects, conservationists, city planners, students, and citizens' groups continue to turn to Olmsted for ideas about the development and conservation of green spaces in urban areas.

The Olmsted Papers project is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the National Trust for the Humanities, the National Association for Olmsted Parks, as well as private foundations and individuals.

Reviews

"Olmsted the man belongs to his own time, but his work and words continue to have meaning today... The editors are preserving a life and a work instructive for the future as well as of the past."

- Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography

"An indispensable work for any student of the Old South. The book is not merely indispensable; it is challenging and controversial."

- New York Times
