Abstract:

"Not everyone in the North was an abolitionist. Not everyone in the South supported slavery. In this extraordinary account Dennis Haynes, Irish-born and an immigrant to Louisiana, became a wanted man when he made his Unionist sympathies known. Although he was to survive the war after organizing and serving in a unionist band of like-minded citizens of Louisiana and become a district attorney in New Orleans, he was pursued, battered and hated during the war years. Editor Bergeron (US Army Military History Institute) carefully annotates Haynes's story but lets the man speak for himself. Bergeron also provides correspondence by Haynes and an account by C.S.G. Clifton, a Unionist who returned to the South after the war to find he was no better tolerated than Haynes. Annotation 2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)"--Reference & Research Book News.
