About Book

Book Description
Five months after the end of the Civil War, northern journalist Sidney Andrews toured the former Confederacy to report on the political, economic, and social conditions in the aftermath of the South’s defeat. His more than forty articles in the Chicago Tribune and the Boston Advertiser were so popular with curious northerners that Andrews published them as a book in 1866. This new edition of that volume, abridged by Heather Cox Richardson, makes Andrews’s vivid first-hand account of the South after the civil War available once again to a wide audience.

Despite his claims to neutrality, Andrews’s writing reveals a bias against southern culture and society that was founded on a belief in the fundamental superiority of the North’s free-labor economy. His harshest criticism is of southern whites, who, he warned, remained dangerously close to the idea of independence. Ultimately, Andrews concluded, thorough reconstruction of white southern attitudes was necessary before the southern states could be readmitted to the Union. This picture of the postwar South is a true classic and an excellent accessible primary resource.
