New Brand, Same tactics and lies. Less threatening perhaps but also a creation of the media and those that profit from hate and intolerance. Back then it was Griffith and his backers, now its Faux and their overlords. Watch and LISTEN carefully. See how the release of America's first blockbuster movie spurred a resurgence in the KKK and how they expanded their target to include Jews, Catholics and immigrants as well as African-Americans. There is nothing new under the sun except the history you don't know.

Civil War lecture on southern society, slavery, king cotton, and Antebellum America's Peculiar Region. Professor Blight offers a number of approaches to the question of southern distinctiveness. The lecture offers a survey of that manner in which commentators--American, foreign, northern, and southern--have sought to make sense of the nature of southern society and southern history. The lecture analyzes the society and culture of the Old South, with special emphasis on the aspects of southern life that made the region distinct from the antebellum North. The most lasting and influential sources of Old South distinctiveness, Blight suggests, were that society's anti-modernism, its emphasis on honor, and the booming slave economy that developed in the South from the 1820s to the 1860s.
