White Veterans and the Politics of Progressive Reform

Defining the Peace

This chapter examines white veterans' diverse reactions to black participation in Georgia's postwar political life. Veterans leadership in both challenging and defending the postwar political and racial status quo disrupted the generally static nature of southern political life. Their activism ensured that both the politics of racial reform and the politics of racial defense would be an important part of the war's legacy for Georgia and the South.

Keywords:   Georgia, black veterans, political participation, political activism, racial reform, racial defense
