    This book teaches the history of American South from Reconstruction to WWII that we SHOULD HAVE learned in school - but didn't. This is a must-read for anyone who truly wants to understand American history.

    A "must read" for any historian and for anyone interested in understanding our history--this book is a revelation about the slavery that existed after the Civil War. Yes, slavery--thousands and thousands of African Americans being forced to work against their will in mines, steel mills, and forests after a trumped up violation enabled a sheriff to sell him/her for the rest of their days to be treated more miserably by people who could easily replace those who were worked or beaten to death. A whole new chapter in our history known to few. SOLID research--this new kind of slavery went even into the 1920s, kept a secret by southerners and fed officials who refused to prosecute, even when they had reams of evidence.
