Item description

"Burton traces the evolution of Edgefield County from the antebellum period through Reconstruction and beyond. From amassed rmation on every household in this large rural community, he tests the many generalizations about southern black and white families of this period and finds that they were strikingly similar. Wealth, rather than race or class, was the main factor that influenced family structure, and the matriarchal family was but a myth."
