Description
In 1866, distinguished Civil War veteran Major William Stone of the 19th Regiment of the Massachusetts Volunteers arrived in South Carolina to serve in the newly formed Freedmen's Bureau, supporting efforts in voter registration, education, land reform, civil rights enforcement, and mediation of racial disputes. Stone, the son of a prominent abolitionist preacher, wrote vivid descriptions of the poverty, political corruption, agricultural mismanagement, racial hatreds, and explosive violence he witnessed, edited here by his descendants. Yet he was so moved by the possibilities he saw that he remained in Charleston, established a law practice, and was eventually appointed as the state's attorney general.
