William Alexander Percy's Mississippi Delta in 1910 was a world of sprawling cotton plantations, a disproportionately large black population, and a political system run by white people and by Democrats. Percy later wrote stories of Reconstruction, the main act on the stage of southern history. The central theme in these stories was that of southern men defending their honor and their homes.
