The great New Orleans kidnapping case :
race, law, and justice in the reconstruction era /
Michael A. Ross.
|Main Creator:||Ross, Michael A. (Michael Anthony), author.|
In The Great New Orleans Kidnapping Case, Michael Ross offers the first full account of this event that electrified the South at one of the most critical moments in the history of American race relations. Tracing the crime from the moment it was committed, through the highly publicized investigation and sensationalized trial that followed, all the while chronicling the public outcry and escalating hysteria as news and rumors surrounding the crime spread, Ross paints a vivid picture of the Reconstruction-era South, and the complexities and possibilities that faced the newly integrated society.
Includes bibliographical references (pages -295) and index.
