Richard Nelson Current's "Those Terrible Carpetbaggers" offers an accessible account of the Mississippi Plan in the context of parallel biographies of Adelbert Ames, Mississippi's Republican senator and governor during Reconstruction, and Albert T. Morgan, Republican leader of Yazoo County. For primary sources, I highly recommend Morgan's excellent memoir, "Yazoo: Or, On the Picket Line of Freedom in the South," written only a few years later and republished in 2000, as well as Ames's collected letters, which were published by his wife, Blanche Butler Ames.
