This book begins with northern journalist Sidney Andrews' tour of the recently defeated southern states. As he made his way through the coastal towns of Beaufort and New Bern, North Carolina that summer, Andrews was struck by the Janus-faced loyalty of local whites, many of whom had lived quietly under Union occupation for the previous three years. He described a puzzling irony in the region: “The North Carolinian calls himself a Unionist, but he makes no special pretence of love for the Union.” Andrews already detected a streak of southern nationalism in the Beaufort-New Bern region only weeks after the southern nation had been laid to rest. He sensed that white professions of Unionism were fragile at best.
