THE MASTERSHIP AND ITS FRUITS: THE EMANCIPATED SLAVE FACE TO FACE WITH HIS OLD MASTER. A SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT TO HON. EDWIN M. STANTON, SECRETARY OF WAR, BY JAMES MCKAYE, SPECIAL COMMISSIONER.
Wm. C. Bryant,, New York: 1865 - 38, [2 blank] pp. Original printed front wrapper, else Very Good. McKaye looks at the "great changes which slave society is undergoing" in "the valley of the Lower Mississippi." Of all the "other sections visited by the Commission, here are found all the elements of that society still in existence; but in a state of revolution and transformation." Recounting Slavery's features in this area of the Deep South, he explores the interaction of the races during the earliest phases of military reconstruction, the sleepy pace of many of the changes, the biases of white Union officers, and-- with much eyewitness testimony-- provides a valuable report on the results of the abolition of slavery in the part of the South where it was most deeply entrenched.
