Class and Tennessee's Confederate Generation

Synopsis

This unique study of a generation of Tennessee soldiers contrasts in detail the lifestyles and class attitudes of the nineteenth-century South. Bailey has gleaned a vast amount of information on landownership and slaveownership, occupations, wealth, education, social-class relationships, Civil War experiences, and post-bellum careers. He argues that class differences and conflict were stronger that suggested by earlier scholars.
