Summary
"Based on the true-life efforts of Senators Charles Sumner and Thaddeus Stevens to bring political order and racial equality to the post-Civil War South. ... an illiterate runaway slave, Gideon Jackson, returns home to the sprawling [South] Carolina plantation, his birthplace, after serving as a Union soldier. A self-effacing yet commanding man, Jackson earns respect and [the] trust of his Carwell peers, a community of liberated Blacks and sharecropping Whties, who elect him under Reconstruction law as a delegate to rewrite the state constitution in Charleston. There Gideon gets a lesson in politics and teaches himself to read and write. Both educations prove valuable to Gideon as he sets out on a hard-fought struggle against intolerance and injustice that's marked by an uphill battle to buy land"--Container
