His hesitation is prompted by a concern that readers might assume that these primary documents constitute everything necessary to understand what went on in Adams County in 1861. On the contrary, only a wide-ranging knowledge and deep understanding of nineteenth-century America could have enabled him to grasp the meaning of his sources and penetrate their silences. In a hauntingly eloquent epilogue entitled "A Separate Peace," Jordan reminds us that the Second Creek slaves were "people who mattered and who ought, like all people, to be taken seriously as such."

In her present capacity she presided over the publication of what, in Jordan's understatement, "turned into a somewhat longer study than originally anticipated."
