This book begins with an introductory overview of the socio-political climate of the state of Mississippi during the 1850s and ends with a treatment of its post-war environment. In between, the work covers the pivotal events, issues, and personalities of the period. Wynne emphasizes the experiences of Mississippians--male and female, black and white--as they struggled to deal with the crisis. The political events leading to secession, Mississippians' initial enthusiasm for war, voices of dissent, the disbursement of troops in and out of the state, the home front, freedom for the slave community, waning enthusiasm (both in the military and on the home front) as the war dragged on, defeat, and the ultimate struggle to turn defeat into a moral victory through Lost Cause mythology are also discussed.

Willie Perkins left the staid, conservative world of commercial bank auditing to jump headlong into the burgeoning beginnings of The Allman Brothers Band and follows their meteoric and sometimes tragic rise, fall, and revival. Perkins’s interest in the business of music and his association with an interesting pair of friends led him to the opportunity to work with the Allmans at the earliest stage of their career. We learn from a true insider what it was like to live the nomadic life on the road with the Allmans from their earliest low-buck club tours through the triumphant million-dollar months of outdoor stadium dates in the mid-seventies. Perkins vividly describes living in the band’s “Big House,” and what it was like to room on the road with the legendary Duane Allman and what a truly amazing person he was. The author tells of all the band and crew members, and shares how they all dealt with the bumpy road to rock stardom.
