In this book Durrill describes in graphic detail the disintegration during the Civil War of southern plantation society in a North Carolina coastal county. He examines the failure of a planter-yeoman alliance, and discusses how yeoman farmers and landless white laborers allied themselves against planters, but to no avail. Durrill also shows how slaves, when refugeed up country, tried unsuccessfully to reestablish their prerogatives--subsistence, as well as protection from violence--owed to them as a minimal condition of their servitude. In sum, he details struggles among planters, slaves, yeoman farmers, and landless white laborers, as well as a guerrilla war and a clash between two armies that, in the end, destroyed all that remained of the country's social structure.show more
