First-Person Narratives of the American South

First-Person Narratives of the American South is remarkable for the variety of voices represented, including those of "African Americans, women, enlisted men, laborers, and Native Americans." Text of their diaries, autobiographies, memoirs, travel accounts, and ex-slave narratives offers a first-hand view of the South's troubled history from 1860 to 1920.
