The growth of Southern civilization, 1790-1860 by Clement Eaton( Book )

42 editions published between 1961 and 1985 in English and held by 2,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The South has occupied a peculiar and tragic status in American history -- it is the only section that has had to struggle with a great all-encompassing social evil. Mr. Eaton's study shows that this evil, slavery, was not often the physically cruel institution which the abolitionists portrayed -- its evil was of the mind and spirit. It was, however, only one of the powerful forces which changed the South from the most liberal to the most conservative region of the nation. In dealing with the decades leading up to the Civil War, Mr. Eaton calls attention to neglected phases of Southern civilization -- to the growth of city life, the rise of the business class, the effects of erosion and exhaustion of the soils, and the problems of social justice. Pointing up the significance of the middle class in Southern life, he finds, instead of the monolithic South of legend, a society of much variety and of subtle complexity. In The Growth of Southern Civilization the author has brought the quality of realism to the history of the South by basing his study upon a wide range of sources. He presents the drama of ordinary people struggling with the problems of Southern life -- the yeomen and mechanics, the aristocratic planters, the poor whites, the Negroes as human beings, reformers, businessmen, schoolteachers, all in the last analysis more important than the politicians and military leaders. Above all, Mr. Eaton portrays clearly and critically the psychology that underlay the secession movement and the War for Southern Independence."--Book jacket

Exhibiting a clear, straightforward style, his many works are marked by a comprehensiveness and a catholicity of view. There is hardly an element of southern thought or society, hardly a major movement of any kind or an event of any significance that has escaped his penetrating thought and discerning analysis. This volume of Eaton's selected writings forms a rich and provocative mosaic of southern life from the years of Thomas Jefferson to the close of the Civil War. These selections, perceptively edited by Albert D. Kinvan, 'show the wide range of Eaton's interests, including the impact of sl

Green Mount; a Virginia plantation family during the Civil War: being the journal of Benjamin Robert Fleet and letters of his family by Benjamin Robert Fleet( Book )

2 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The papers presented here are an unusual contribution to the literature of the Old South and of the Civil War. The journal of Benjamin Fleet is in itself extraordinary. A little over thirteen years old when he began the journal a few months before the war, Benny writes with a maturity surprising in a boy so young, but, more important still, he sees the world around him with the clear-sighted directness of youth. The letters of Fred, Benny's older brother, who writes from the Confederate army, and those of the parents complete the collection. There have been many published diaries and memoirs from the Civil War period in the South, but here for the first time are brought together the impressions of a whole family, the varying points of view of youth and age, soldier and civilian. Here is a lively and realistic picture of the impact of war upon life on a southern plantation -- the central economic entity and cultural symbol of the civilization which grew in the South before the war and which the war brought to an abrupt end"--Introduction
