The Good Man: The Civil War's “Christian General” and His Fight for Racial Equality

Gen.O.O. Howard, the white man from Maine for whom Howard University, the leading university for African-Americans, was named, was W.T. Sherman's principal deputy in the march across the South and later took charge of the federal government's Reconstruction efforts. Though Reconstruction failed, Howard successfully fostered the creation of academic institutions for African-Americans. He became an abolitionist, but went further to become a leading advocate of equal rights for racial minorities.
