Bricks without straw; a novel by Albion W Tourgée ( Book )
46 editions published between 1880 and 2011 in English and held by 1,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A classic of American political fiction first published in 1880, a mere three years after Reconstruction officially ended, "Bricks Without Straw" offers an inside view of the struggle to create a just society in the post-slavery South. It is unique among the white-authored literary works of its time in presenting Reconstruction through the eyes of emancipated slaves. As a leading Radical Republican, the author, Albion W. Tourgee, played a key role in drafting a democratized Constitution for North Carolina following the Civil War, and he served as a state superior court judge during Reconstruction. Tourgee worked closely with African Americans and poor whites in the struggle to transform North Carolina's racial and class politics. He saw the ravages of the Ku Klux Klan firsthand, worked to bring the perpetrators of Klan atrocities to justice, and fought against what he called the "counter-revolution" that destroyed Reconstruction

A fool's errand by Albion W Tourgée ( Book )
34 editions published between 1879 and 1971 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based largely on Tourgée's actual experiences in Greensboro, North Carolina during Reconstruction, this is the fictional story of Comfort Servosse, a man of French Canadian descent who joins the Civil War on the Union side, then returns home after the war and resolves to move his family to the South. He purchases a decayed plantation called Warrington in Rockford County; the state to which he moves is never identified. He makes a name for himself as a radical Yankee--or carpetbagger--and arouses the hostility of the neighbors in the community. The rest of the story follows his increasing involvement on the behalf of former slaves in the community and his opposition to the activities of the Ku Klux Klan. There are several digressions and conversations in which Servosse, his friends, and even the narrator discuss the numerous problems facing the South during the time of reconstruction and blaming some of the violence and trouble in the South on Washington's unwillingness to step in where required
