Tinbridge Hill in Lynchburg, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
After the end of the war, when thousands of freed slaves across the South moved to cities, Green and several members of his family came to Lynchburg. He ﬁrst worked in a tobacco warehouse in the city, and then as a wagon driver and delivery man. The Green family lived near the intersection of Polk and Sixth Streets for nearly fifty years. Silas Green died in 1937 at the age of 92.
