Documentary History of Reconstruction. Political, Military, Social, Religious, Educational & Industrial, 1865 to the Present Time. With facsimiles. [two volumes]
Comprehensive history of the post-American Civil War Reconstruction era, from contemporary sources, by long-time Vanderbilt professor of history, Walter Lynwood Fleming (1874–1932).
Fleming’s controversial approach to the history of the Reconstruction-era American South—especially because he was a leading proponent of a conservative historiographical method, has been deemed racist and deeply emblematic of the “Jim Crow” era by modern historians.
This copy owned by noted Civil War military and social historian, Bell I. Wiley (1906–1980), professor of history at the University of Mississippi, Louisiana State University, and Emory University.
