"Professor John F. Marszalek has been a versatile and prolific producer of top-flight scholarship and doctoral students. These probing, finely crafted essays by his former students on race in American history from the nineteenth to the early twentieth century offer an apt tribute to the work of a distinguished historian."
--Daniel Feller, editor/director of The Papers of Andrew Jackson and author of The Jacksonian Promise: America, 1815-1840
"This splendid collection includes little-known but fascinating accounts of life along the color line. We meet a failed slave owner who could not live up to his famous name, Union patriots (traitors?) in Civil War Mississippi, and African American boxers in--of all places--Columbus, New Mexico, during World War I. John F. Marszalek set exacting standards of scholarship for his doctoral students at Mississippi State University, and here they do their mentor proud!"
--John Dittmer, author of Local People: The Struggle for Civil Rights in Mississippi, winner of the Bancroft Prize in History
