Course Description

This course examines the history of the Old South from 1600 to beginning of the Civil War, but focusing on the period from 1800 to 1861. The lectures and readings cover a variety of topics, including myths and facts about southern society and culture, slavery and the strengthening of southern distinctiveness, and political events that eventually led to the creation of a separate (short-lived) southern nation in 1861. Grade of C required for history majors.
