by Charles W Chesnutt

Description

When former Confederate officer Colonel French returns to his North Carolina hometown after building his fortune in the North, he is a new man. He intends to create better economic conditions for those who have only known hardship. But there is a new social order in the South that stands in his way. The very men who used to look upon Colonel French with awe now berate him and his idealism--and they are determined to make him fail.
