The battles of Kings Mountain and Cowpens : the American Revolution in the Southern backcountry by Melissa Walker( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American South is so identified with the Civil War that people often forget that the key battles from the final years of the American Revolution were fought in Southern states. The Southern backcountry was the center of the fight for independence, but backcountry devotion to the Patriot cause was slow in coming. Decades of animosity between coastal elites and backcountry settlers who did not enjoy accurate representation in the assemblies meant a complex political and social milieu throughout this turbulent time.

Recovering the Piedmont past : unexplored moments in nineteenth-century Upcountry South Carolina history( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a window into the social and cultural life of the South Carolina upcountry during the nineteenth century. The history of South Carolina's lowcountry has been well documented by historians, but the upcountry -- the region of the state north and west of Columbia and the geologic fall line -- has only recently begun to receive extensive scholarly attention. The essays in this collection provide a window into the social and cultural life of the upstate during the nineteenth century. The contributors explore topics such as the history of education in the region, post-Civil War occupation by Union troops, upcountry tourism, Freedman's Bureau's efforts to educate African Americans, and the complex dynamics of lynch mobs in the late nineteenth century. Recovering the Piedmont Past illustrates larger trends of social transformation occurring in the region at a time that shaped religion, education, race relations, and the economy well into the twentieth century. The essays add depth and complexity to our understanding of nineteenth-century Southern history and challenge accepted narratives about a homogeneous South. Ultimately each of the eight essays explores little-known facets of the history of upcountry South Carolina in the nineteenth century. The collection includes a foreword by Orville Vernon Burton, professor of history and director of the Cyberinstitute at Clemson University.--Publisher
