Creating citizenship in the nineteenth-century South

William A. Link, David Brown, Brian Ward, Martyn Bone

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

Abstract

Explores the politics and meanings of citizenry and citizens' rights in the nineteenth-century American South: from the full citizenship of some white males to the partial citizenship of women with no voting rights, from the precarious position of free blacks and enslaved African American anti-citizens, to postwar Confederate rebels who were not "loyal citizens" according to the federal government but forcibly asserted their citizenship as white supremacy was restored in the Jim Crow South. © 2013 by William A.
