Reviews
"This book provides a well-researched, exhaustive, and fascinating examination of the life of Benjamin Bickerstaff, a desperado who preyed on blacks, Unionists, and others in northeastern Texas during the Reconstruction era until armed citizens killed him in the town of Alvarado in 1869. The work adds to our knowledge of Reconstruction violence and graphically supports the idea that the Civil War in Texas did not really end in 1865 but continued long afterward."--Carl Moneyhon, author of Texas after the Civil War: The Struggle of Reconstruction

"The authors managed to weave together the national, state, and local narrative of Reconstruction and presented it in a fluid and comprehensive manner."--Southwestern Historical Quarterly
