The North Carolina Historical Review Vol 23

ISBN: 0265570638
Release Date: 2017-10-21
Genre: Reference

Excerpt from The North Carolina Historical Review, Vol. 23: Issued Quarterly; January-October, 1946 At the turn of the eighteenth century a great upsurge of re ligious enthusiasm began to develop in the frontier regions of the South. Reaching tidal-wave proportions in Kentucky during 1800-1801, it swept eastward, overflowing the older communities of the Atlantic seaboard. Rightly this religious catharsis has been called the Great Revival, for it produced a revolution in the religious life of the South and the West. The background Of this movement was a state of irreligion into which the Southern people had relapsed, due partly to deism, to the effects Of the American Revolution, and to the rapid expansion of the, frontier. The central idea behind the movement was an American crusade to save souls from hell - that terrifying illusion haunting the minds of the people. The agency used to effect this end was pe culiarly suited to the rural population of that period - the camp meeting, which gathered tremendous crowds from scattered homesteads to listen to relays of ministers preaching a religion of high emotional voltage.1 After 1805 the excitement of 'the Great Revival began to ebb, but revivals did not disappear from the mores of the ante-bellum South or from other sections of the country. Rather, they'came at intervals and ran their courses. In 1857-58, for example, after a serious financial panic, a widespread religious revival took place in the Northern states. The last great revival in the South occurred among the gray-clad soldiers of the Confederacy fol lowing tragic reverses in battle. Frail human nature appears.

ISBN: 1611212685
Release Date: 2015-03
Genre: North Carolina

The North Carolina Civil War Atlas is a comprehensive full-color study of the impact of the war on the Tar Heel State, incorporating 97 original maps. The only state-level atlas of its kind, the book is a sesquicentennial project of the North Carolina Office of Archives and History. The large format (11" x 17") volume highlights every significant military engagement and analyzes the war's social, economic, and political consequences through tables, charts, and text. Manuscripts, election returns, newspapers, census records, and other sources were used to prepare the narrative and compile the tabulated data. From the capture of Hatteras Island and the Burnside Expedition through the fall of Fort Fisher and the Carolinas Campaign of 1865, the state's Civil War history is examined in a new light. Groundbreaking information includes updated casualty statistics, General Sherman's route of march, and the role of U.S. Colored Troops. Historic road networks are based on wartime maps created by engineer Jeremy F. Gilmer matched against the earliest modern road surveys. A variety of primary manuscript map resources were used from the State Archives and the University of North Carolina. Thanks to GIS technology, wartime places and landmarks, identified with their contemporary spellings, are presented in their correct geospatial orientation. Rare photographs complete the package. The North Carolina Civil War Atlas belongs on the shelves of every serious student of the Civil War in general, and the war in North Carolina in particular. This vital reference work will immediately take its rightful place in libraries alongside other North Carolina studies penned by such scholars as John G. Barrett, Mark Bradley, and Chris Fonvielle.

Law and Society in the South

Author: John Wertheimer
Publisher: University Press of Kentucky
ISBN: 9780813173313
Release Date: 2009-01-01
Genre: Law

Law and Society in the South reconstructs eight pivotal legal disputes heard in North Carolina courts between the 1830s and the 1970s and examines some of the most controversial issues of southern history, including white supremacy and race relations, the teaching of evolution in public schools, and Prohibition. Finally, the book explores the various ways in which law and society interacted in the South during the civil rights era. The voices of racial minorities-some urging integration, others opposing it-grew more audible within the legal system during this time. Law and Society in the South divulges the true nature of the courts: as the unpredictable venues of intense battles between southerners as they endured dramatic changes in their governing values.
