Families, communities, and the nation itself were irretrievably altered by the Civil War and the subsequent societal transformations of the nineteenth century. The repercussions of the war incited a broad range of unique problems in Appalachia, including political dynamics, racial prejudices, and the regional economy. Andrew L. Slap's anthology Reconstructing Appalachia reveals life in Appalachia after the ravages of the Civil War, an unexplored area that has left a void in historical literature. Addressing a gap in the chronicles of our nation, this vital collection explores little-known aspects of history with a particular focus on the Reconstruction and post-Reconstruction periods. Acclaimed scholars John C. Inscoe, Gordon B. McKinney, and Ken Fones-Wolf are joined by up-and-comers like Mary Ella Engel, Anne E. Marshall, and Kyle Osborn in a unique volume of essays investigating postwar Appalachia with clarity and precision. Featuring a broad geographic focus, these compelling essays cover postwar events in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. This approach provides an intimate portrait of Appalachia as a diverse collection of communities where the values of place and family are of crucial importance.Highlighting a wide array of topics including racial reconciliation, tension between former Unionists and Confederates, the evolution of post–Civil War memory, and altered perceptions of race, gender, and economic status, Reconstructing Appalachia is a timely and essential study of a region rich in heritage and tradition.
  • Thank you

  • great dealer

  • Thorough and at times, contradictory, as most good historical accounts are when multiple viewpoints are involved.

  • Reconstruction is one of the most contentious areas in American history, depending on who is talking:
    Reconstruction is the process by which Freemen and loyal Unionist will form a new southern society.
    Reconstruction is the process by which Radical Republicans try to punish and enslave white southerners.
    Reconstruction fails due to Klan violence and the Federal withdrawal of support for loyal governments.
    Reconstruction is a production of Northern fears, paranoia and the desire to exploit a defeated South.

    We seldom think of Reconstruction in the Mountains of Kentucky, Tennessee, North and South Carolina, Georgia or West Virginia. We think of Reconstruction in the plantation areas or cites with large numbers of Freemen. Appalachia, with a largely white population, few slaves, hardscrabble family farms and a large group loyal Unionist is not involved. Kentucky remained in the Union and was never part of Reconstruction. Lincoln pushed and pleaded for a campaign to occupy loyal eastern Tennessee during the war. The western Carolinas were refuge to large numbers of Confederate deserters and Union guerrilla bands. West Virginia left the Confederacy to join the Union. What can we say about Reconstruction in Appalachia?

    For this group of young historians, the answer is a lot! The 13 well-written essays, covering from the end of the war to 1921, introduce a new world to many readers. Reconstruction becomes a political contest for control of an area. Much of this occurs at the county level and is very personal. Reconstruction is less about Freemen's rights than about who wins and who loses. The bands of Confederate deserters and Union guerrillas did not disarm and go home after the war. Returning soldiers did not find victory parades, as fighting for either side became unpopular. The result is often bad guys vs. worse guys. The individual essays are uniformly good. All are informative, readable and well documented. That they do not all agree captures the problems in the area and the different possible views. The book's organization is not geographic or chronological; this helps us understand the diversity of problems as we see the different reconstructions. Violence is common and a part of political life, the war and Reconstruction just add reasons and bring better arms into the fray.

    While this is not a book for everyone, it is necessary reading for those interested in Reconstruction, Appalachia or America after the war.
