Rose, Willie Lee : Johns Hopkins University
Willie Lee Rose, professor emeritus at Johns Hopkins University and author of Rehearsal for Reconstruction, provided a new introduction. Patricia Romero, of Towson State University and author of Sylvia Pankhurst: Portrait of a Radical provided the annotations to the text.
"Susie King Taylor's recollections are invaluable for those who wish to understand the civil war from a black woman's point of view. . . . A treasure in the light of today's feminist movement. . . . They are the memoirs of a black woman who was born as a slave and had the good fortune to gain her freedom early in the war, with the education and the ability to observe, and the will to recall it years later."
--Willie Lee Rose, Johns Hopkins University
"Taylor's writing is at its strongest and most vivid as she decries the betrayal of the freedom and equality blacks and whites had fought for in the Civil War."
"A unique document. . . . Thanks to Willie Lee Rose's instructive introduction, Taylor's work is placed in a deserving historical context."
--Women's Review of Books
"Quite a life - and book."
"A book of many surprising rewards and pleasures. It was a delight to read."
--C. Vann Woodward, Yale University
