Reveille UMC 2015 Summer Book Review Series: Harry M. Ward

2:Harry M. Ward presents Children of the Streets of Richmond, 1865-1920. Richmond in the late 19th century was cosmopolitan, boisterous and crime-ridden. The juvenile delinquents of Richmond were held accountable in the Police Court, presided over by Justice John Jeter Crutchfield who, though unlearned in the law, functioned like a biblical Solomon but with great showmanship. What emerges from the public record is an amusing and touching picture of what life was really like in the post–Reconstruction urban South. Harry M. Ward is a retired University of Richmond history professor and the author of 20 books. Learn more about this title . Reveille UMC summer book reviews have been a popular tradition for over 50 years. Book reviews begin with a reception in the church welcome center at 10:30 am, followed by an author talk in the chapel at 11:00 am. A book signing follows each talk.
