The Facts of Reconstruction

by John R. Lynch

The texts is important for a number of reasons;First, it was the first text authored by a black critic that refutes Traditionalist's interpretations of Reconstruction History. Second, Lynch's stands as one of the earliest Revisionist critiques in regard to black leadership during Restruction. Third, Lynch's accounts are from firsthand knowlege of the period, Lynch held a number of political posts in Reconstruction Mississippi. Lynch's text makes three important assertions: (1)the enfranchaisement of blacks Post Civil War was the right thing to do. He argues strenuously that black politicians strove to make Reconstruction a success, but were actually not in control of southern states. Lynch maintained that political power was placed in the hands of white appointtees. (2)Like Alrutheus and DuBois, Lynch maintained that depite being short-lived, Reconstruction was a success, not a failed project. (3)Lynch also praised the passage of the 15th Admendment.

Thoughtcrime Experiments

by Various Authors

When I saw the "mind-breakingly" description, I thought to myself, "No way, that is just too ambitious." Well after reading the first five or six stories, I must say I agree. This seems to be another example of really good authors publishing under the Creative Commons. Welcome to the future.
