The Mighty Revolution
Negro Emancipation in Maryland, 1862--1864
First published in 1964 by the Johns Hopkins University Press, the book recounts in lively prose and complete detail the Civil War prejudices and politics behind Maryland's decision to become the first state to voluntarily free its slaves.
"A laudable achievement in research, organization, interpretation, and narration." -- Dudley T. Cornish, Journal of American History
"If, 'history is past politics,' then we should congratulate the author for having written a very good history indeed." -- W. A. Low, Journal of Negro History
