    As i read more history i begin to undertand why historians say that the transition from the end of the civil war through reconstruction, perhaps a total decade or so, shaped the social and cultural landscape of this country for the next 100 years, until the civil rights movement of the 1960's turned things around.

    One of the emblematic episodes of the civil war-reconstruction period was the colfax massacre, an incident where more than 150 blacks were killed in a confrontation with whites at a local courthouse in colfax louisiana.

    Elections in the south since the end of the war were fraught with irregularites, fraud, intimidation and murder, as they were caught up in the continuing battle between the federal government's efforts to reconstruct and restrain the old southern imperatives and the southern conservative white population's efforts to return to their ante bellum world.

    It is under these circumstances that author leeann keith relates the events leading up to and following the colfax massacre.

    Nevertheless, her work provides an important higlight of a particular event that helped set the tone for the next 100 years: after the colfax defendants were released based on a supreme court ruling, giving southern whites unintended judicial endorcement of their pre-war policies, and for all intents and purpose, despite the implicit mandate of the south's loss of the war, sending the message that social and political relations could pretty much return to their pre-war configurations.

    I think the book could also have benefited from more details about daily life in colfax and louisiana, as these details make only cameo appearances and leave the reader with a superficial sense of the daily context of living in this era.

    A very sad incident of unspeakable terror and murder by democrat white power advocates.

    When there should be much more of this incident taught in schools, as well as memorialized, it sadly is not.
