The growing interest in Southern history and institutions and the growth of college and university courses in the history of the South have revealed the need for a single-volume synthesis of Southern development. Making no pretense to encyclopedic erudition, this volume is designed as a manual to meet the needs of students.
The writer's thanks are due to Miss Marie Rulkotter and Messrs. George Smith, Thomas B. Rowland, and T. Harry Williams, students in his seminar at the University of Wisconsin, and to Professor Carl Wittke, editor of the series, for reading the manuscript and making many valuable suggestions.
