Report of the Joint Committee on Reconstruction, at the First Session Thirty-Ninth Congress.
Jenkins: “Over 800 pages of testimony, correspondence, and reports taken from southern Unionists, Freedman’s Bureau officials, carpetbaggers and Federal soldiers (including a long series of statements by George A. Custer), and blacks, concerning resistance toward Reconstruction on the local level throughout the South. Based largely upon this concrete evidence, Congress concluded that the former Confederate states did not deserve representation in Congress ... An excellent primary source of deep influence. Well indexed.”
