Albion W. Tourgee in North Carolina Historiography and Historical Memory

Record #:
Smith reports on his broad research study of examining the life and contributions of Albion Tourgee, who was North Carolina's famous carpetbagger, lawyer, law maker, judge, civil rights activist, and novelist. He came to Greensboro in 1865, and following a remarkable career here, moved to Colorado in 1879. His name is attached to the Reconstruction Period in the state. Smith states that what has surprised him most about the man is the minimal attention paid to him by educators and historians.
