On Jordan's Banks book.
On Jordan's Banks book. In On Jordan's Banks, Darrel E. Bigham examines the lives of African Americans in the counties along the northern and southern banks of the Ohio River both before and in the years directly following the Civil War. Gleaning material from biographies and primary sources written as early as the 1860s, as well as public records, Bigham separates historical truth from the legends that grew up surrounding these communities.
In his latest work, Darrel Bigham offers readers an ambitious overview of blacks' lives before, during, and after the Civil War in the counties in the states contiguous to the Lower Ohio River Valley (Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana). Written in a straightforward, matter-of-fact style, On Jordan's Banks will both greatly enlighten the general, "lay" portion of its targeted audience and serve as the standard academic source on many of its Ohio Valley topics for the indefinite future.
