Magnolia Journey: A Union Veteran Revisits the Formed Confederate States (Southern Historical Publications No. 17)

University, AL: University of Alabama Press, 1974. Hardcover. Hardcover. x + 190 pp. Fine in original dust jacket with spine library sticker (this copy deaccessioned from the War Library of a national military history institution). In 1869, Russell Conwell, former soldier, lawyer, journalist and future lecturer and clergyman, was sent on a tour of the former Confederate States by the publishers of the Daily Evening Traveller of Boston. Though the primary assignment was to report on the conditions of the major Civil War battlefields, his perceptiveness and astute sense of humor transformed his "Letters From Russell" into a panoramic survey of the post-war South, reconstructed and unreconstructed.
