Does anyone know of a work that describes and/or analyzes the "Mississippi Plan" of 1875? While most historians know the Mississippi Plan involved overthrowing the state's reconstruction government, I have yet to find a more lengthy treatment of the topic.C. Vann Woodward discusses the Mississippi Plan in the context of legal disfranchisement in_Origins of the New South_ , and others, including Eric Foner in_Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution_, Michael Perman in_Road to Redemption_, William Gillette in_Retreat From Reconstruction_ describe the events briefly. If no study exists, do you feel there is need for one? Michael Perman's_Struggle for Mastery_does an excellent job documenting and analyzing legal disfranchisement, but the topic of extralegal disfranchisement seems to be under-treated. Thanks for any suggestions or comments, Ryan Hughes Student, San Francisco State University
