A leading proponent of racial equality in the United States during the second half of the nineteenth century, Albion W. Tourgeacute;e (18381905) served as the most articulate spokesman of the radical wing of the Republican party and he continued to advocate for its egalitarian ideals long after Reconstruction ended. Undaunted Radical presents Tourgeacute;e's most significant letters, speeches, and essays from the commencement of Radical Reconstruction through the bleak days of the era of Jim Crow. It also includes an introductory overview of Tourgeacute;e's life and an exhaustive bibliography of Tourgeacute;e's writings and related works, providing an essential collection for anyone studying Reconstruction and the early civil rights movement.
