About this Item

In the ten year span 1866-76, more than three thousand free African Americans and their white allies were killed by terrorist organizations in the South. This epochal event was submerged for many years and many myths were promulgated to cover the tracks of this orchestrated campaign of atrocity and violence. Budiansky, a journalist and military historian, tells this story and it is extraordinary. This copy is a first edition, first printing, with number line starting at "1," Fine/Fine, binding clean and tight, DJ with no marks, chips or clips. Bookseller Inventory # 150400
