Ep 10: For Whom the Liberty Bells Toll


Dr. Adam Rothman of Georgetown University joins us to talk about his amazing book, “Beyond Freedom’s Reach.” According to the book’s website “In a gripping, meticulously researched account, Adam Rothman lays bare the mayhem of emancipation during and after the Civil War. Just how far the rights of freed slaves extended was unclear to black and white people alike, and so when Mary De Hart returned to New Orleans in 1865 to visit friends, she was surprised to find herself taken into custody as a kidnapper. The case of Rose Herera’s abducted children made its way through New Orleans’ courts, igniting a custody battle that revealed the prospects and limits of justice during Reconstruction.” [ad_2]
