The Retreats of Reconstruction

David E. Goldberg

Fordham University Press

Chapter 1 examines the early political struggles of business owners, white tourists, and black workers to define the boundaries of the public sphere during the Reconstruction era. For both whites and blacks alike, the promotional battles and intellectual disputes that ensued between 1865 and 1893 revealed the ways in which segregation was moving beyond discussions of free labor ideology and becoming increasingly tied to consumer opinion after the Civil War. Out of these disputes emerged an intermediate segregation policy that failed to ensure the peace or profitability of the region’s popular vacation destinations.
