The American Negro: Report on The Condition of the South


One of the most prophetic cautions was Carl Schurz’s The American Negro: Report on The Condition of the South Gifts for Book Lovers based on the states of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana from an extensive tour of that part of the country during the summer of 1865.
This study of the history of that period describes Southern conditions immediately after the war, is well worth reading.
Some of his opinions were:

·       Southern people have not abandoned their pro-slavery mindsets

·       In self-sufficiency, these states will be near slavery

·       And new civil governments are not yet possible.

Seventy-nine days of travel and observation in the south only strengthen Schurz’s convictions.

The book has some library stickers. No highlighting.
