Gullah Statesman: Robert Smalls from Slavery to Congress, 1839-1915
About the Authors
"Gullah Stateman is an extremely well documented and informative biography of Robert Smalls, the African-American Civil War hero and Reconstruction-era politician from South Carolina. Miller's work constitutes a significant addition to the fields of Southern, African American, and Civil War history."—Mississippi Quarterly
"Miller has marshaled an impressive array of primary sources. . . . It is unlikely that anyone will soon surpass this level of comprehensiveness."—American Historical Review
"The strength of Gullah Statesman is the author's attention to political detail. Miller provides valuable examination of the South Carolina political situation during Radical Reconstruction, Conservative Redemption, and Democratic Supremacy. . . . The book is a valuable contribution to the scholarship on blacks in the post-Reconstruction era."—H-Net Reviews
