Re: Senate Report - Negro Exodus from Southern Sta

Wonderful reference!!
Thanks for the reply - and the other Painter books.

It was the EXODUSTERS that first got me interested in reading these congressional records first hand years ago. These senate/house reports document more than the migration out of the South, the reasons for and the attitude towards that migration, as so eloquently portrayed in the Painter book.

Most people have heard of Pap Singleton and Henry Adams, but they are not aware of the other (minor) characters that came across the Senate Stage in the spring of 1880. These witnesses come alive in the pages of Senate Report 693.

The originals read like a Perry Mason Court transcript - without the happy ending.
