The gripping tale of an armed band of Confederate deserters and slaves living in a mixed-race community who rose up against the Confederate Cavalry in 1863 to form their own republic, free of slavery, in what is now the state of Mississippi. The community they formed, and the ambiguous racial identity of their descendants, confounded the rules of the segregated South well into the twentieth century.

Get ready for a political documentary, not a novel, but a discussion of the republic of Jones, a true event of the Civil War. It well read, but rather tedious at times, and not easy to digest.
