Work[edit | edit source]

Currie-McDaniel's 1987 book about John Emory Bryant, Carpetbagger of Conscience describes a "typical" carpetbagger.[2] The Journal of American History writes that the "treatment of her subject is much more shaded and ambivalent than the title suggests."[3] The Georgia Historical Quarterly writes that her treatment of Bryant stands "somewhere near the boundary between the rehabilitationist and what we might label the "post-rehabilitationist" schools of Reconstruction historiography."[4] The North Carolina Historical Review wrote, "This book should be considered the standard biography of John Emory Bryant."[5]

Currie-McDaniel's book, Emma Spaulding Bryant: Civil War Bride, Carpetbagger's Wife, Ardent Feminist - Letters and Diaries 1860-1900 (2004) describes the life of Emma Spaulding Bryant apart from her husband, John Emory Bryant.[6] The Journal of Southern History wrote "this volume serves as a unique resource for students of women, race, Reconstruction, and gender relations."[7]
