Atlanta, Cradle of the New South: Race and Remembering in the Civil War's Aftermath - Civil War America (Hardback)William A. Link (author)
- Not available
Link frames the city as both exceptional--because of the incredible impact of the war there and the city's phoenix-like postwar rise--and as a model for other southern cities. He shows how, in spite of the violent reimposition of white supremacy, freedpeople in Atlanta built a cultural, economic, and political centre that helped to define black America.
