Omtale: Becoming Southern
Mississippi represented the Old South and all that it stood for perhaps more than any other state. Christopher Morris takes a close look at one of those "typically" southern communities, Jefferson Davis's Warren County, the northern-most of the five old river counties located in the state's southwestern corner. By exploring Warren County's history Morris traces the evolution of Old South society from its pioneer origins to its end at the onset of the Civil War. This is a study of a society's development, a snapshot of the people and their community in crisis and demonstrates the significance of change over time in the antebellum South.
