Editorial Reviews

Review

"Executing Daniel Bright is microhistory at its finest...surpasses Phillip Shaw Paludan's classic Victims (1981) in analytical sophistication, making it one of the finest books we have on localized guerrilla warfare."
Peter S. Carmichael, Reviews in American History 39


"What Myers has shown about the vicious, vengeful nature of guerrilla warfare is as impressive as it is sobering...Myers has also proven that for many residents of northeastern North Carolina local loyalties...were more important than Confederate independence or the preservation of the Union. "
Paul Escott, Civil War Book Review

Advance Praise
"This fine piece of microhistory shows why guerrilla conflict became a decisive factor in determining the loyalties of many wartime southerners...Myers' intricate tale of race, revenge, and intimidation in North Carolina leaves no doubt that local circumstances and the threat of personal ruin...ruled."---Daniel E. Sutherland

Executing Daniel Bright brings to mind Charles W. Joyner's admonition that historians "ask big questions about life in small places." In his compact, fast-paced, well-researched microhistory, Myers employs a fine lens and a subtle touch to examine the vicissitudes of war. John David Smith, Journal of American History

Executing Daniel Bright...radically challenge[s] existing interpretations of the Civil War in eastern North Carolina. Their positions on class divisions, wartime allegiances, Union policies, the role of African Americans, and the importance of gender will shape debate for the next 
generation. North Carolina Historical Review
