John Fea, Professor of American History and Chair of the History Department at Messiah College in Grantham, Pennsylvania, documents his experience with the Returning to the Roots of the Civil Rights Tour on his blog, The Way of Improvement Leads Home. posted by MonkeyToes (3 comments total) 13 users marked this as a favorite
 
The title of Fea's blog is drawn from the title of his scholarly biography of Philip Vickers Fithian, an educator and Revolutionary War officer from New Jersey who died during the War.

I was struck by the single image included in Fea's post on lynching: A wall of jars, each holding dirt from lynchings in Alabama. Just Alabama? My God, so many jars...
