Overview:

Reconstruction in Alabama examines the post Civil War period in Alabama and addresses the role of the new Alabama Republican Party in creating a new Alabama. This dramatic period witnessed many changes in Alabama, including the emergence of black officeholders, black schools and churches, universal public education, and enlarged rights for women.

Born in Montgomery, Richard Bailey holds degrees from Alabama State University and the Atlanta University, and received the Doctor of Philosophy degree in American History from Kansas State University. He has traveled and studied in Europe and Africa through a joint fellowship from Cleveland (Ohio) State University, the University of Massachusetts, and the American Forum for International Travel and Study. His columns have appeared in newspapers across the state and he is the author of They Too Call Alabama Home: African American Profiles, 1800-1999 (1999). The fifth edition of his book Neither Carpetbaggers Nor Scalawags: Black Officeholders during the Reconstruction of Alabama, 1867-1878 is forthcoming in 2009.
