Customers who bought this item also bought
Drago's study moves beyond politics to provide readers with a good deal of information on the coming of freedom to Georgia's slaves, on the freedman's educational movement, on the modification of the plantation system during the postwar years, and on the indifference of white Republicans to black aspirations.(Journal of Southern History)
A fine work of scholarship and a significant contribution to Reconstruction historiography. It ranks with the best of the recent studies of black political leadership in the southern states.(Kenneth M. Stampp)
From the Back Cover
This widely hailed study examines the reasons behind the quick demise of Radical Reconstruction in Georgia. Edmund shows that a primary factor was, ironically, the extraordinary fairness on the part of the state's black leaders in dealing with their former masters.
