Overview
Excerpt from The Great South: A Record of Journeys in Louisiana, Texas, the Indian Territory, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland

America during the whole of the year 1873 and the Spring and summer of 1874.

The journey was undertaken at the instance of the publishers of Scribner's Monthly Magazine, who desired to present to the public, through the medium of their popular periodical, an account of the material resources, and the present social and political condition, of the people of the States formerly under the dominion of Slavery. The author and the artists associated with him in the preparation of the work travelled more than twenty-five thousand miles; visited nearly every city and town of importance in the Southern States; talked with men of all classes, parties, and colours; carefully investigated the state of the country, the labour question, manufacturing enterprises and sites; studied the course of politics in each State since the advent of reconstruction; explored rivers, and penetrated into mountain regions heretofore rarely visited by people of the Northern States, and all but unknown to Europeans. They were everywhere kindly and generously received; and they have endeavoured, by pen and pencil, to give the reading public a truthful picture of life in a section of the country which has, since the close of a devastating war, been overwhelmed by.a variety of misfortunes, but upon which the dawn of a better day is breaking.
