What they had in common was that they were white and had been drawn to the Sea Islands by the condition resulting from the sudden creation of a free black population. Where they differed was in how they responded to the freedmen. These differences manifested themselves in different degrees of commitment to the free labor ideology, self-help, black land ownership, religious denomination and practice, and education.
