Easter Sunday 1873, Colfax, Louisiana: A white militia of Confederate veterans-turned-vigilantes ousts the elected town government and, in a gruesome killing spree, attacks the black community there, massacring dozens of people. This horrifying episode began an insurgency that changed the course of American history. White Southern Democrats were emboldened to further action, and for several years they waged a campaign of political terrorism aiming to overturn the Fourteenth and Fifteenth amendments and challenge President Grant's support for the emergent structures of black political power. Redemption-which is based on a wealth of military records, congressional investigations, memoirs, press reports, and the invaluable personal and public papers of Adelbert Ames, the young war hero from Maine who was Mississippi's governor at the time-is the first book to describe in uncompromising detail this organized racial violence, which reached its apogee in Mississippi in 1875. We are still living with the consequences. Book jacket.
