Introduction: Travels in the New South I and II, 1865-1955.

Travel accounts provide a primary source for researchers in many fields. This collection is based on Thomas D. Clarks bibliography and offers various accounts of life in the post-Civil War South.

This collection details the state of Southern culture during three-quarters of a century as the South continued its struggle back to equality with the rest of the nation. The works include the post-war years, 1865-1900, an era of reconstruction and readjustment; and 1900-1955, an era of change and renewal.
