Documentary History of Reconstruction. Political, Military, Social, Religious, Educational and Industrial, 1865 to 1906. [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) and first published in 1906 and 1907.

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.
