Return to Port Royal Experiment
Miss M. L. Kellogg
Hilton Head
April 16, 1863
American Missionary
This report from Miss M. L Kellogg was written from Hilton Head island on April 16, 1863. You can see the
influence of the American Missionary Association with the testaments and effort to read them. The purpose of
education was religious: "wise unto salvation."  This would be the essential difference between the AMA and the
National Freedmen's Relief Association.
