“Gracefully written and exhaustively researched, Taylor’s book offers the reader a vivid and convincing narrative of these slave refugee camps as “an elemental part of the story of slavery’s destruction in the United States,” one that deserves a broad readership among not only Civil War enthusiasts but anyone interested in the history of race and slavery in the United States.” —Starred review, Publisher’s Weekly
