1997 0-7734-8437-X In this study of relief and recovery efforts in South Carolina after the Civil War, the emphasis is on people, and in particular on those people who seem to be excluded from, or barely mentioned in, the conventional studies of the era. By delving deep into the primary source material of the period, this study allows readers to discover an expanded past, one that for the most part has remained as 'hidden history.'
