The Mitcham war of Clarke County, Alabama by Harvey H Jackson( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In August of 1893, "between four and five hundred heavily armed men" roamed a remote area in north central Clarke County, Alabama, searching for members of a gang they called the "Mitchamites." Those they hunted were believed to be responsible for the outbreak of lawlessness that plagued the county for over three years. Some claimed "Mitchamites" had committed as many as five murders. After two weeks this "mob" or "posse" (which it was still debated) dispersed, leaving in its wake at least four men dead, a region in ruins and a people terrified. No "Mitchamite", nor any of the men who hunted them down, were ever brought to trial, This was the Mitcham War. It really happened." -- Book text

Oh, what a loansome time I had : the Civil War letters of Major William Morel Moxley, Eighteenth Alabama Infantry, and Emily Beck Moxley by William Morel Moxley( Book )

2 editions published between 1753 and 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most surviving correspondence of the Civil War period was written by members of a literate, elite class; few collections exist in which the woman's letters to her soldier husband have been preserved. Here, in the exchange between William and Emily Moxley, a working-class farm couple from Coffee County, Alabama, we see vividly an often-neglected aspect of the Civil War experience: the hardships of civilian life on the home front. Emily's moving letters to her husband, startling in their immediacy and detail, chronicle such difficulties as a desperate lack of food and clothing for her family, the
A century of controversy : constitutional reform in Alabama by Bailey Thomson( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This timely examination of Alabama's severely criticized state constitution will serve as an indispensable guide for legislators and citizens considering reform of the outdated document. Alabama's present constitution, adopted in 1901, is widely viewed as the source of many, if not most, of the state's historic difficulties and inequities. Chief among these is a poorly funded school system, an imbalanced tax system that favors special business interests, legislated racism, and unchecked urban sprawl. Many citizens believe that, after 100 years of overburdening amendments and confusing addendu
Letters from Alabama : (U.S.) chiefly relating to natural history by Philip Henry Gosse( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The English naturalist Philip Henry Gosse (1810-88) spent nine months in 1838-9 in a small town in Alabama where he was the teacher at the local school. His time there was unhappy because of the widespread abuse of slaves he witnessed, the support of the practice by his fellow Methodists being particularly distressing. However, he loved the beauty of his surroundings, and the abundant wildlife, and in 1859 he published this account in the form of nineteen letters. Gosse recounts in detail his voyage from Philadelphia to Mobile, Alabama, and the environment around his new home in the hills, with vivid descriptions of the plants, animals and insects he observed there. He rarely mentions slavery specifically, but the arrogance of the masters and the plight of their 'possessions' is a recurring theme in the work. Other books on natural history by Gosse are also reissued in this series
