Harold S. Wilson provides an incisive examination of the Confederate military's quartermaster system (through which the government sought to commandeer and direct the nation's industrial output in a fashion much akin to War Socialism) and post-war initiatives designed to rebuild the South's industry. The author brings to the fore one Henry Grady, a New South reformer whose vision led the way for a gradual rebirth of Southern industry in the latter part of the 19th century.
