From the Publisher"Bynum maps a road that few took, but the evocative stories of these families demand notice."
-Virginia Quarterly Review
"[This book] ranks among the most innovative in its methods and its findings….[Bynum] is to be commended for her sheer doggedness as a researcher and her creative use of methods and sources."
-The Journal of American History
"Fascinating. . . . Bynum demonstrates an impressive, intricate knowledge of the case. . . . The book is an interesting read and opens up avenues for scholars who wish to trace kinship migrations throughout the South and the cultural linkages those migrations may have established."
-The Review of Politics
"Supported by impressive research and crafted to enlighten rather than celebrate or condemn, this book offers a penetrating portrait of the dissenters and their world. A strong addition to upper-level Civil War collections, it will also serve as a lively read for the general public. . . . Highly recommended."
"Historians wishing to pursue such comparisons and questions will find great value in Bynum's careful research."
-Journal of the Civil War Era
"Those who enjoy the study of Reconstruction social and political battles as much or more than the military conflicts of the Civil War will find a wealth of material here for further study. . . . [Bynum's] engaging writing style will no doubt interest many readers of her book as well."
"Bynum highlights the 'solid South' as a construction and even more successfully presents the importance of 'kinship, community, and place' in sustaining resistance to oppression."
