Editorial Reviews


<p>This work is a significant addition to the history of Reconstruction not only in the Lower Cape Fear but in North Carolina as a whole. Furthermore, it is the type of study which needs to be read by the synthesizers of the Reconstruction story at the national level. . . . A substantial, well-documented work which achieves through both style and scholarship the author's purpose of revealing a people and an area at a turning point in their history.</p> (Journal of Southern History)

<p>Brilliantly written . . . The study is a model in researching, writing, and interpreting local history.</p> (Journal of American History)

<p><i>Ballots and Fence Rails</i> deserves the much-abused designation 'classic.' It is an exemplary study that combines an acute analysis of the dynamics of Reconstruction with a richly textured portrait of a locale, its people, and its history&#8212;all accomplished with a fluidity and grace of presentation that only a few professional historians achieve.</p> (Barbara J. Fields) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
