The purpose of this study was to discover what was typical in the
history and character of the state during the period of the Civil
War and the readjustment that followed. The author explains the
early neutrality of the state that did not secede until after the
war, the break-down of that neutrality, the growing dominance of
the Confederacy, and postwar reconstruction.
Originally published in 1926.
