 About the Book 

Here, after more than fifty years of secrecy, the terrible truth is revealed. It was the uncertain mid-point of World War II. The United States was embroiled in an all-out fight abroad for its very survival. But back on American soil-at an Army baseMoreHere, after more than fifty years of secrecy, the terrible truth is revealed. It was the uncertain mid-point of World War II. The United States was embroiled in an all-out fight abroad for its very survival. But back on American soil-at an Army base in southwestern Mississippi - the unthinkable occurred. They were U.S. soldiers. They were defenseless. They were black.Part I chronicles Cases efforts to uncover the incident and explains in detail what actually occurred. Part II is The Evangeline File, a fact-based novel set in present-day south Mississippi. As Case poignantly writes, It is such a terrible, ugly tragedy, and there is an innate human hesitance to admit what actually happened. By putting it in a vehicle of fiction, it somehow makes it easier to face the truth.
