After the Glory: The Struggles of Black Civil War Veterans
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe heroics of black Union soldiers in the Civil War have been justly celebrated, but their postwar lives largely neglected. Now, Shaffer's illuminating study shines a bright light on this previously obscure part of African-American history, revealing for the first time black veterans' valiant but often frustrating efforts to secure true autonomy and equality as civilians.
