Pegasus, New York, 1969. First Paperback Edition. Paperback. Near Fine/N/A. black titles spine; "the Civil War had an incalculably. traumatic effect on the. South and the Southern spirit, but it did not bring about the creation of a new South within a few short years. To the contrary, much of the Old South civilization survived the war and reconstruction and lived on into the twentieth century. Professor Eaton's brilliant and sensitive study begins with the formation of the Southern Confederacy and ends with the 1880's when men such as Henry Grady and Atticus Haygood were hailing the rise of the New South, The author explores the currents of social and cultural life that flowed on despite the disaster of a civil conflict - and de-emphasizes the military and political history that has been treated in depth elsewhere. However, he makes it clear that in the 1880's the Old South was by no means dead: it waned slowly and could not truly be called gone until the Depression years of the 1930's. The author's primary concern is with telling how slowly the deeply-rooted ways and ideas of the past die. To this subject, Professor Eaten brings fascinating insights and a high caliber of excellent scholarship."; mark from price-label removal front cover; previous owner's name on front endpaper; including note on sources & index - 195 pages.
