Reconstruction and Recovery: The Post-Civil War South (8 week class)
Old Dixie was shocked and humiliated by her unexpected defeat at the hands of the detested Yankees. Incredibly, "The Chivalry" had been beaten by soulless, materialistic Northerners. How would the loyal sons and daughters of the Confederacy react to the Unthinkable? Carry on the struggle, or join the modern world and create a commercial, urban culture where cotton and sugar cane once grew? This class will trace the moral and political struggle post-war Southerners faced in the wake of utter ruin.
