University of North Carolina Press

This chapter examines how the “moral communities” of honor and evangelicalism intersected for white men and women in the Deep South before the Civil War. It argues that for white women these two communities overlapped and reinforced one another, while men struggled, often successfully, to navigate the tension between these two communities.
