Description

This book discusses the role of the U.S. Army in North Carolina Reconstruction. To understand the army's Reconstruction role, I approach the army at "troop level." Unlike previous studies of the army's activities in North Carolina, I go beyond the general officer level. I describe and analyze how political and military decisions affected soldiers stationed throughout North Carolina by asking these questions: What did garrisoned forces do that had an impact on Reconstruction? How did the army's bureaucratic structure and sometimes racist attitudes affect policy? How did regular forces react to civil courts and to the Freedmen's Bureau? Despite some uncertainty about their mission, I found that officers and soldiers followed orders; and their actions had a significant positive influence on society.show more
