Tracy Campbell (au). Shortly after 1900, tens of thousands of tobacco growers throughout Kentucky & Tennessee convulsed the region for nearly a decade in a revolt against the monopolistic practices of the American Tobacco Co. The revolt known as the Tobacco Wars remains one of the more remarkable insurgencies in the history of rural America. Campbell tells the story of these embattled farmers & casts a provocative new light on the issues that fueled the Tobacco Wars. These Wars represented one of the last desperate gasps from the countryside before the onset of “agribusiness” drove millions of farmers & their families away for good. Maps, drawings, charts & tables.
