Benjamin Truman's report on conditions in the South is dated April 9, 1866, and is a thorough though excessively optimistic analysis of the state of Southern society in the early days of Reconstruction. He concludes that the returned Southern soldier is the best guarantee of a peaceful and successful Reconstruction; and that the South is far more loyal and patriotic to the Union than at War's end. He asserts that the Southern planter class is the best friend of the freedmen, and predicts a glorious future for the New South.
