Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book will be important not only because it tells us more than we knew before about the black experience but also because it explores topics rarely or never treated in previous scholarship.

Synopsis:

Through Jordan's narrative we witness every aspect of African American life in Virginia, both slave and free, during the civil war, from soldiers who fought in the Confederate and Union armies to those who acted as spies, as laborers in munitions factories, and those who labored on the home front in rural and urban areas.

Synopsis:

On the eve of the Civil War, more Afircan-Americans lived in Virginia than in any other state- 490,000 slaves and 59,000 free blacks- and they were active participants in the single most dynamic event to shape the American consciousness. Black Confederates and Afro-Yankees in Civil War Virginia is the first comprehensive study of Civil War Afro-Virginian history and culture. Through it we witness every aspect of black life: slave and free; rural and urban; homefront and battlefield; at work on plantations but also in munitions factories in Richmond; as wartime Union spies and as soldiers in the Confederate army.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 389- 403) and index.
