Overview

In this comprehensive biography of the man who led North Carolina through the Civil War and, as a U.S. senator from 1878 to 1894, served as the state's leading spokesman, Gordon McKinney presents Zebulon Baird Vance (1830-94) as a far more complex figure than has been previously recognized.

Vance campaigned to keep North Carolina in the Union, but after Southern troops fired on Fort Sumter, he joined the army and rose to the rank of colonel. He was viewed as a champion of individual rights and enjoyed great popularity among voters. But McKinney demonstrates that Vance was not as progressive as earlier biographers suggest. Vance was a tireless advocate for white North Carolinians in the Reconstruction Period, and his policies and positions often favored the rich and powerful.

McKinney provides significant new information about Vance's third governorship, his senatorial career, and his role in the origins of the modern Democratic Party in North Carolina. This new biography offers the fullest, most complete understanding yet of a legendary North Carolina leader.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An excellent biography that clearly supersedes earlier works. Highly recommended."
Choice

"Effectively depicts the relationship between Vance and his lieutenant colonel . . . while conveying a clear sense of Vance's military skills and deficiencies. . . . McKinney's approach . . . is refreshing, and the analysis is thought-provoking."
Civil War History

"Peels away the layers of myth to unmask a champion of the Lost Cause. . . . [A] masterful biography."
Georgia Historical Quarterly

"A well-written, exhaustive account of Zeb Vance's life and politics. . . . Masterfully combining biography, history, and historiography, McKinney creates a complete picture of a tumultuous time and of a man who dominated those times. This will stand as the definitive biography of Zebulon Vance."
Journal of Southern History

"McKinney has etched a persuasive and surely definitive portrait of this significant nineteenth-century political figure. . . . Excellent."
Journal of American Studies

"Carefully crafted, this impressive biography tells us much about the shortcomings of political leadership in the wartime and postwar South."
— Daniel W. Crofts, The College of New Jersey

"The best study ever of Zeb Vance. McKinney is thorough, fair, and unflinching in his analysis."
— Paul D. Escott, Wake Forest University
