Summary
"Alabamians in Blue is the first-ever scholarly examination of Alabama's black and white Union soldiers and their contributions to the eventual success of the Union army in the western theater. Arguing that Alabama's Anti-Confederate residents tendered important service, primarily by collecting intelligence and protecting logistical infrastructure, Christopher Rein highlights an unappreciated period of biracial cooperation, underwritten by massive support from the federal government. Using military records, individual diaries, and leveraging the robust secondary literature, Alabamians in Blue provides a broad synthesis that demonstrates that southern dissenters were not passive victims but rather active participants in their own liberation. They went on to direct Republican politics throughout the Reconstruction period, and fueled dissent in the New South"--
