Yazoo; Or, on the Picket Line of Freedom in the South: A Personal Narrative
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungYazoo is a rare and revealing account of Reconstruction by a Wisconsin carpetbagger and devout abolitionist who moved to Mississippi in pursuit of wealth and social reform. Albert T. Morgan leased a cotton plantation in Yazoo County in 1865. His farming venture failed -- as did his efforts to secure interracial democracy. In 1884, nine years after fleeing Mississippi under threat of death, Morgan published Yazoo at his own expense to explain the difficulties he and his compatriots faced in the South.An absorbing story made all the more poignant by Joseph Logsdon's new introduction, Yazoo offers a sustained narrative about the social and political dynamics of Reconstruction on the plantations, in the local courthouse, and even in the bedrooms of planters and politicians.
