Link frames the city as both exceptional—because of the incredible impact of the war there and the city's phoenix-like postwar rise—and as a model for other southern cities. He shows how, in spite of the violent reimposition of white supremacy, freedpeople in Atlanta built a cultural, economic, and political center that helped to define black America.
