One of the biggest fears was being sold "down river", which was a term slaves used for the deep south. In the deep south, treatment was worse, and once a slave was sold "down river", they were almost never heard from again.

What did slaves do when slavery ended?

probably got really confused those who were treated the worst were probably over joyed most were probably confused, where do you go, what do you do a lot remained on the plantations and continued living as they did & treated as they were which contributes to a lot of "slave land" being inherited by slaves and to this date is owned by generations of the original slaves that worked it. if they still had family in Africa, maybe they returned, but I doubt it when the slaves were enslaved, they were kidnapped or their entire tribe was enslaved by a rival tribe so their family was probably un-reachable. So maybe family members across America atleast had the right to see each other, but then again everything costs $, and i cant imagine slaves had any
