Praise for The Families’ Civil War

“The Families’ Civil War: Black Soldiers and the Fight for Racial Justice…is a well-researched, cogently written, and original longitudinal study social history of freeborn African American families in Philadelphia from 1850 to the 1920s.” (Dr. John David Smith, the Charles H. Stone Distinguished Professor of American History at the
University of North Carolina at Charlotte.)

“The research is first-rate, and the stories recalled to life here are important, illuminating, and, sadly, too often tragic.” (Dr. Douglas Egerton, author of Thunder at the Gates: The Black Civil War Regiments That Redeemed America).

“A fine book, The Families’ Civil War” enhances our understanding of the war’s lived consequences in general, and the African American military experience in particular.” (Dr. Brian Matthew Jordan, Pulitzer Prize finalist for Marching Home: Union Veterans and Their Unending Civil War.)
