Review quote

Back cover copy

Originally published in 1951, this classic work by one of America's foremost experts on Southern history presents an important new interpretation of the Compromise of 1877, forcing historians to revise previous attitudes towards the Reconstruction period, the history of the Republican party, and the realignment of forces that fought the Civil War. Because much of the negotiating occurred in secrecy, historians have known less about this Compromise than others before it. Now reissued with a new introduction by Woodward, "Reunion and Reaction" gives us the other half of the story.show more
