Reviewed by Carl Moneyhon - The review begins "In the summer of 1860, fear of an abolitionist plot to cause a slave insurrection spread across the South following a fire on July 8 that destroyed much of the business district of Dallas, Texas. Scholars, beginning with Ollinger Crenshaw in the 1940s, have seen the so-called Texas Troubles as an important step toward secession, particularly helping to create the psychological context for action. The history and character of that panic, however, has never been explored fully prior to this work." Read more at http://www.h-net.org/reviews/showrev.php?id=23533
