Carefully crafted, deep analysis of two counties in Upcountry Georgia, 1850-1890. Explores the region’s experience with secession, the Confederacy, and the rise of a modern capitalist economy. Shows that the failure of Populism in the 1890s was due to trends decades in the making. Deep dive into poor farmers and their artisan republicanism.
