Editorial Reviews

Review

<p>This is the finest, most detailed, most commonsensical study of the Freedmen's Bureau in any state that has ever been written.</p> (Barry A. Crouch author of <i>The Freedmen's Bureau and Black Texans</i>)

<p>A detailed narrative, gracefully and engagingly written . . . This excellent piece of scholarship belongs among the best recent studies of the Reconstruction era.</p> (History: Reviews of New Books)

<p>Cimbala's in-depth look at the operations of the Freedmen's Bureau in Georgia provides a useful corrective to those inclined to judge the bureau harshly.</p> (Journal of American History)

<p>Diligent primary source research, keen analysis, and a fine narrative style are blended here to produce the definitive work on the Bureau<b> . . . in Georgia.</b></p> (Florida Historical Quarterly)

<p>One of the most balanced, objective, and detailed studies available on the subject.</p> (North Carolina Historical Review)

<p>Well-researched . . . A useful addition to Reconstruction scholarship.</p> (American Historical Review)

<p>Cimbala gives us a valuable account of the workings of the Bureau on the local level in the agency's declining days.</p> (Journal of Southern History)

<p>This is an excellent institutional history; indeed, it is the most detailed state study of the Freedman's Bureau to date.</p> (H-CivWar) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
