Item description for Tupelo by Dennis Sporer John Paul, Hill Aughey...
Repression of dissent in the pre-Civil War South is an issue that is rarely discussed. Although it is known that Southerners and their government officials did not generally tolerate criticism of the prevailing concepts of slavery and states' rights, we have less reliable information as to the extent and methods of censorship. Furthermore, in order to obtain a full understanding of the culture that led to the Civil War, we need to challenge many "facts" of dubious authenticity, especially in respect to the moral and ethical codes of the supposedly "genteel" South. TUPELO, by John Hill Aughey, is a brilliant first person, totally truthful account, of a man imprisoned and condemned to execution by the brutal officials of the South for his outspoken anti-Secession and pro-Union beliefs. He makes a truly miraculous escape, to report the details of his ordeal in what was to become a highly praised and popular autobiography. This book, out of print for more than 100 years, will surely enlighten everyone about the terrifying dangers of complacency and ambivalence in the face of mob fanaticism. The process of rebellion is examined, how it grows, manifests itself, and finally flares up into anarchy and madness.
