This chapter discusses civic rituals before the Civil War. The streets offered an important venue for ceremonies in the colonial through antebellum period, including popular disorders, festivals, and organized political behavior. Persons living in those times understood that these displays reinforced the nature of authority. They were, as scholars have argued, not simply reflections of social behavior but an active means of practicing politics.
