The Edge Of The South: Life In Nineteenth-Century Virginia, Edward L. Ayers, John C. Willis Jan 1991

The Edge Of The South: Life In Nineteenth-Century Virginia, Edward L. Ayers, John C. Willis

Bookshelf

The chapters in this volume explore diverse scenes of nineteenth-century Virginia: the big house and the slave quarters, small farms and battlefields, freed slaves in the country and freed slaves in the city, dark coal mines and brightly illuminated caverns, raucous political rallies and genteel meetings of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Each essay offers a new perspective on a past which refuses to fit familiar ways of thinking about the nation and the South.
