New Orleans after the Civil War : race, politics, and a new birth of freedom

Author: Justin A Nystrom
Publisher: Baltimore, Md. : Johns Hopkins University Press, 2010.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
We often think of Reconstruction as an unfinished revolution. Justin A. Nystrom's original study of the aftermath of emancipation in New Orleans takes a different perspective, arguing that the politics of the era were less of a binary struggle over political supremacy and morality than they were about a quest for stability in a world rendered uncertain and unfamiliar by the collapse of slavery.
