THE BLOODY SHIRT Terror after Appomattox

by | Read by Phil Gigante

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

The time of Reconstruction after the Civil War (1865-77) is often overlooked in history books, and many people know little about this period. Although the defeated South may have accepted the idea of a Union preserved, it was not going to accept any more than that. This work describes the effort by white Southerners to reestablish their political and legal control amid what they perceived to be an occupying colonial power, the North. Their methods involved terror, not unlike that which Al Qaeda carries out in Iraq. Phil Gigante performs this work with energy and passion, for this is a work that stirs the emotions. He performs accents--Northern, Southern, and African-American--with equal skill. The narrative is clear and just as engaging.
