Description

The Great New Orleans Kidnapping Case is as much a lively portrait of a unique city as it is a suspenseful mystery and a political history of an all-but-forgotten era. The exotic atmospherics include rumors of voodoo human sacrifices, yellow-fever epidemics, Mardi Gras parades, and the nuanced relationships of Afro- and white Creoles. Ross set out to mine 'a single historical moment for insights into both the history of New Orleans and the Reconstruction era.' He succeeded." -Susan Tejada, Washington Independent Review of Books

Auteur
Michael A. Ross is Professor of History at the University of Maryland. He is the author of the prize-winning Justice of Shattered Dreams: Samuel Freeman Miller and the Supreme Court during the Civil War Era.

Résumé
In this stunning work of historical recreation, Michael Ross uses a kidnapping investigation and trial that electrified the South in the summer of 1870 to offer important new insights into the complexities and possibilities of the Reconstruction era.
