Turning Points in the History of the South: Part 1 - Early Colonies and the Antebellum Years (Prerecorded)

John Boles

The South has long been a region considered different from the rest of the nation, although in colonial days the South was precisely what promoters in England expected and wanted colonies to be and New England was the exception. But that all changed. This course examines developments that shaped the history and culture of the region.

Part I: Early Colonies and the Antebellum Years
This first lecture in this series explains how the work force gradually changed from one of white indentured servants from England to enslaved Africans, with results that transformed the colony and tragically shaped the region’s subsequent history.
