William McKee Evans is a professor of history emeritus at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. He is also the author of To Die Game: The Story of the Lowry Band, Indian Guerillas of Reconstruction.
Ballots and Fence Rails deserves the much-abused designation 'classic.' It is an exemplary study that combines an acute analysis of the dynamics of Reconstruction with a richly textured portrait of a locale, its people, and its history--all accomplished with a fluidity and grace of presentation that only a few professional historians achieve. --Barbara J. Fields Brilliantly written . . . The study is a model in researching, writing, and interpreting local history. --Journal of American History This work is a significant addition to the history of Reconstruction not only in the Lower Cape Fear but in North Carolina as a whole. Furthermore, it is the type of study which needs to be read by the synthesizers of the Reconstruction story at the national level. . . . A substantial, well-documented work which achieves through both style and scholarship the author's purpose of revealing a people and an area at a turning point in their history. --Journal of Southern History
