Format: Hardcover
"South Carolina During Reconstruction" is a fascinating read simply because of its age. Yet, this book is not for the casual reader. The book is extensive in details and statistics, often to the extent of potentially losing the reader's focus. At times, the authors also make contradictory statements on account of using sweeping statements on assessing Reconstruction. After spending lengthy time writing of the many benefits of military rule, for example, the authors counter their own statements several paragraphs later by mentioning that there were few benefits. More careful wording was needed to prevent the reader from second-guessing the material. Clearly, if anything, this only proves how complex and confusing Reconstruction was. The authors show that North and South both committed voting fraud, utilized violence and intimidation, and accepted corruption within their governments. Any position on the benefits or failings of Reconstruction can be well argued from either point of view. Simkins and Woody have produced a solid work and argue that the freedmen's attainment of religious and societal independence were the biggest benefits from Reconstruction. Their detailed argument in support of this position is overwhelming.
