It was established in 1849 as a community for and by former African-American slaves who escaped to Canada to gain freedom. Rev. William King, a Scots-Irish/American Presbyterian minister and abolitionist, had organized the Elgin Association to buy 9,000 acres of land for resettlement of the refugees, to give them a start in Canada. Within a few years, numerous families were living here, having cleared land, built houses, and developed crops. They established schools and churches, and were thriving before the American Civil War. Buxton now has a population of over 400 people.

Black Popular Music in America: From the Spirituals, Minstrels, and Ragtime to Soul, Disco, and Hip-Hop, Arnold Shaw
6 Arnold Shaw Black Popular Music in America: From the Spirituals, Minstrels, and Ragtime to Soul, Disco, and Hip-Hop
Macmillan / Schirmer March 1986 0028723104 / 9780028723105 First Edition Hardcover Collectible - Good Very Good 
1st Printing - Ex-library with usual marks. No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. DJ is VG . . . . . . As Shaw correctly states, no single volume covers the history of black popular music in its entirety, and most studies have focused on the white mainstream. American pop music is in fact a blend of black and white musical influences that can be better understood if explored from a black perspective. Shaw examines five key black styles: minstrelsy, spirituals, ragtime, jazz, and blues, analyzing the origins and developments of each, profiling important artists and songs, and exploring the "white synthesis." Often the "synthesis" has amounted to little more than a soulless white imitation of inspired black stylistic innovations. A final chapter looks at the contemporary scene. It will be easy for the casual reader to get lost in the avalanche of detail, and there are minor errors, but overall this is a worthy, much needed, well-documented history. A basic purchase for public, secondary, and college libraries. Thomas Jewell, Waltham P.L., Mass. Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Blood for Dignity: The Story of the First Integrated Combat Unit in the U.S. Army, David P. Colley
13 David P. Colley Blood for Dignity: The Story of the First Integrated Combat Unit in the U.S. Army
St. Martin's Press February 2003 0312300352 / 9780312300357 Hardcover Collectible - Very Good 
1st Edition / 1st Printing - Binding tight and square, text clean and free of marking and writing. Appears unread - dust cover shows slight shelf wear. . . . . . Meticulously researched and wonderfully suspenseful, Blood for Dignity is the tale of a fascinating and little-known piece of World War II American history, seen through the eyes of 5th Platoon, K Company, 394th Regiment, 99th Division--the first black unit integrated with a white infantry company since the Revolutionary War. David P. Colley paints an absorbing, combat-heavy portrait of these African American and white men fighting together for their countryan historical event whose resonance would be felt for generations, and whose lesson would be transposed onto American society, shattering myths and destroying assumptions that had haunted blacks for years. The integration of African American platoons with white combat units at the tail end of World War II almost didnt happen. With the pressing need for more troops and the vision of men such as Dwight Eisenhower, black soldiers who only wanted to fight for their country were finally given the opportunity in March of 1945. The performance of these soldiers laid to rest the accepted white attitude of a century and a half that African Americans were cowardly and inferior fighters. In fact, they proved to be just the opposite. From basic training in the deep south, to hard labor in Europe, these men traveled a long and difficult road before they could take up arms for their country. The 5th of K finally saw combat at the Remagen Bridgehead as they fought side-by-side with white soldiers, driving back a dangerous German army in 1945. Thanks to in-depth interviews with many of those who fought in and alongside the 5th of K, author David P. Colley mixes the horrors of war with the intensely personal in a way that brings us closer to the brave men of this Platoona group of soldiers whom readers will come to know and admire and not soon forget.

17 Eugene D Genovese The Political Economy of Slavery: Studies in the economy & society of the slave South
Pantheon Books 1967 B0006BMU4C Hardcover Used - Good No Jacket 
3rd printing (1967) Ex-library with usual marks. No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. No DJ. . . . . . . . . TOC: -- Part One: The Setting: The Slave South: An Interpretation. // . -- Part Two: Virgin Land and Servile Labor:// The Low Productivity of Southern Slave Labor: Causes and Effects, The Negro Laborer in Africa and the Slave South, Cotton, Slavery, and Soil Exhaustion, Livestock in the Slave Economy, The Limits of Agricultural Reform. // . -- Part Three: The Subservience of Town to Country:// The Significance of the Slave Plantation of Southern economic Development, The Industrialists under the Slave Regime, Slave Labor or Free in the Southern Factories: A Political Analysis of and Economic Debate . // . -- Part Four: The General Crisis of the Slave South:// Origins of Slavery Expansionism. // . -- A Note on the Place of Economics in the Political Economy of Slavery. // . -- Bibliographical Note. // . -- Index. . . . . . . . . These studies fall under the rubric of “the political economy of slavery,” not “the economics of slavery,” because they are concerned less with economics or even economic history as generally understood than with the economic aspect of a society in crisis. They argue that slavery gave the South a social system and a civilization with a distinct class structure, political community, economy, ideology, and a set of psychological patterns and that, as a result, the South increasingly grew away from the rest of the nation and from the rapidly developing sections of the world. That this civilization had difficulty in surviving during the nineteenth century – a bourgeois century if any deserves the name – raises only minor problems. The difficulty, from this point of view, was neither economic, nor political, nor moral, nor ideological; it was all of these, which constituted manifestations of a fundamental antagonism between modern and premodern worlds.
