Show Summary Details


Simkins's first book, The Tillman Movement in South Carolina, was a well-crafted work, its amply footnoted text covering 246 pages. The book's thorough fifteen-page bibliography verified Columbia University's William Shepherd's opinion of the high quality of Simkins's research. In the future, Simkins's diligence in uncovering sources would become one of the trademarks of his writing.
