Historical 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.
