Jacob Eschbach Yoder, a Pa. native, went south after the Civil War to help educate newly freed blacks. His diary offers a remarkable glimpse of daily life in the post-war South, the trials and rewards of running a freedmen's school, and the personal musings of a young man coming of age amidst great social change. (192pp. illus. index. hardcover. Lib. of Va., 1996.)
