"This study of the only county in South Carolina founded in 1871, during Reconstruction, has an educational aim to present a frank report of a trying time which has been covered up. . . . Nowhere in South Carolina can local scholars of history find an in depth look at the kind of history every student, black and white, should have available. "Americans need to look again at the black men of Reconstruction politics, their families, and their uphill battle against violence and prejudice"--Pref., p. xi.
