This scholarly, heavily annotated book reminds us that the Old South met the Old West in Texas during the 19th century. The wetter portions of Texas, east of Houston and Galveston, became an extension of the plantation South. The editors have gathered here the best articles on black history that have appeared in the East Texas Historical Journal. The well-chosen articles on Reconstruction, slaves as rebels and buffalo soldiers are preceded by an overview chapter and a survey of sources, with an appendix listing all articles on black history in the journal.
