Beschreibung

In A Black Patriot and a White Priest, Stephen J. Ochs chronicles the intersection of two lives in Civil War New Orleans -- that of the first black military Civil War hero, Captain Andre Cailloux of the 1st Louisiana Native Guards, and that of the Reverend Claude Paschal Maistre, the lone Catholic clerical voice of abolition in New Orleans and one of the first white radicals to emerge in the city.
