The Carpetbaggers (We the People (Compass Point Books Hardcover))

The Carpetbaggers (We the People (Compass Point Books Hardcover)) - Lucia Raatma;Michael Burgan I do enjoy these We the People books. This time they are discussing the Carpetbaggers. Of course, the Carpetbaggers I learned about back in the day were "bad guys" - this book talks about the good, the bad, and the ineffective Northerners that tried to help rebuild the South for whatever reasons. Recommend for older elementary age through middle school. Brief account with a few specifics mentioned. Good introductory to the subject.
