Beginning in the late nineteenth century, Mississippi histories celebrated a harmonious story from the perspectives of dominant white males. The textbooks discounted conflict and stressed conformity. Important authors included Franklin A. Riley, Charles S. Sydnor, and John K. Bettersworth, whose books dominated the field for the generation after 1959.
