Biographical Note

Minnie A. Hill began her tenure at the National Freedman’s Relief Association in 1865, receiving her initial commission to serve as a teacher in Petersburg, Virginia.  It appears she previously taught at a school in Norfolk, Virginia.  In 1866, the Freedman’s Union Commission reappointed Hill to another one year term.  In 1867, the Commission appointed Hill as principal of a school on Pocahontas Island in Petersburg, where she served until at least 1869.  Further information about this individual or organization may be available in the Special Collections Research Center Wiki: <a href="http://scrc.swem.wm.edu/wiki/index.php/Minnie A.
