It’s a classic work of American political fiction that you’ve likely never heard of. First published in 1880, the book’s author, Albion Tourgee, was a radical Republican activist who fought to bring poor whites together with newly free slaves in hopes of creating a just society in the post-slavery South. We look at his legacy, and find out why a new, annotated version of his novel was re-released this year.
