In our researches to compile material for the book we ran into some historical problems and mysteries that we were unable to solve. We hope that one of our readers might know the answer or even help us solve the problem.

 

For example, who was C.E. Workman? He wrote an article titled, “Reconstruction Days in South Carolina,” for the July 1921 issue of Confederate Veterans. Vol. 29 No. 7, pages 256-8, with the standard white supremacist view of Reconstruction. The “Confederate Veteran” didn’t publish just anyone. Workman has been a prominent name in South Carolina.  (The entry is in the book, but not on this web site.)

 

Someone who is living in South Carolina can probably track down who C.E. Workman was. His article may have been commented on in the local press after it had been published.

 

I am going to blog on the various historical problems and mysteries we came across and are coming across over time and hope that our readers can help us.
