Book Description

"These essays reflect the highest standard of scholarly inquiry and will be of great value to interpreters of the life and times of George Washington and to scholars interested in cultural encounter and the development of regional identity in the American South."--Kenneth E. Koons, Virginia Military Institute

George Washington's South brings together a diverse array of essays by scholars in the fields of history, literature, art history, and anthropology, focusing on Washington, the development of regional identity in the South, and interactions among many of the region's people. The contributors examine the relationship between George Washington's varied and contradictory careers as a southern planter, general, and president and the emergence of the American South during the 18th century. They explore how regional identity is formed and how the life of Washington reflects the diversity of race, gender, and frontier experiences that confronted the American South during the years of the Early Republic.
