520    After the Civil War, the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee, 
       forged a different path than most southern urban centers. 
       Long a portal to the Deep South, Chattanooga was largely 
       rebuilt by northern men, using northern capital, and 
       imbued with northern industrial values. As such, the city 
       served as a cultural and economic nexus between North and 
       South, and its northern elite stood out distinctively from
       the rest of the region's booster class. In Chattanooga, 
       1865-1900, Tim Ezzell explores Chattanooga's political and
       economic development from the close of the Civil War 
       through the end of the nineteenth century, revealing how 
       this unique business class adapted, prospered, and 
       governed in the postwar South.     After reviewing 
       Chattanooga's wartime experience, Ezzell chronicles 
       political and economic developments in the city over the 
       next two generations. White Republicans, who dominated 
       municipal government thanks to the support of 
       Chattanooga's large African American population, clashed 
       repeatedly with Democrats, who worked to "redeem" the city
       from Republican rule and restore "responsible," 
       "efficient" government. Ezzell shows that, despite the 
       efforts by white Democrats to undermine black influence, 
       black Chattanoogans continued to wield considerable 
       political leverage into the 1890s.      On the economic 
       front, an extensive influx of northern entrepreneurs and 
       northern capital into postwar Chattanooga led to dynamic 
       if unstable growth. Ezzell details the city's efforts to 
       compete with Birmingham as the center of southern iron and
       steel production.  At times, this vision was within reach,
       but these hopes faded by the 1890s, and Chattanooga grew 
       into something altogether different: not northern, not 
       southern, but something peculiar "set down in Dixie."     
       Although Chattanooga never reached its Yankee boosters' 
       ideal of "a northern industrial city at 
520 8  home in the southern hills," Ezzell demonstrates that it 
       forged a legacy of resilience and resourcefulness that 
       continues to serve the community to the present day
