The South as it is 1865-1866

by Joseph Cardinale

The South as it is 1865-1866 Synopsis

This classic report originally appeared as a series of articles in the Nation between July 8, 1865, and April 11, 1866. Dennett traveled in seven states--Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi--at the very beginning of Reconstruction. His remarkably prophetic account of the recently defeated South is a major source for the history of this transition.

The South as it is 1865-1866 Press Reviews

The book was intensely interesting; vivid, honest, warm, full of concrete instances. . . . No American historian can do without it; no novelist of the period should; certainly no future analyst of the mind and emotions of the South can overlook it. --Chicago Tribune Dennett's dispatches are examples of masterly journalism. They bring to life the people he met and talked with, and they re-create the temper of the times. --New York Times
