Enhance your purchase
The cause of the Battle of Liberty Place was the result of several years of the troubled Reconstruction period, the coerced adoption of the 14 th Amendment, and the stealing of elections and the injustices of the carpetbag regime forced upon Louisiana by the Federal authorities. In particular, the usurpation of the State government in 1873 by Governor William Pitt Kellog and his "Custom House gang" contributed significantly to the events that led up to the battle.

If there is a dark age in American history this is the period. Try finding information about Reconstruction in school texts. This is an important period in American history and the effects are felt in American society even now.
This book will take you back in time to 1874 and the Reconstruction battle between the people of New Orelans versus the police and politicians. What is so interesting is the author has the citizens speak of the battle and times in their words. These citizens tell it like it was as they were there. Many newspaper articles and illustrations are included which add to the period feeling of the book.
To have an understanding of the Reconstruction era this book is a must study and read.
