Etcheson adds a fresh dimension to the history of the Old Northwest by examining the way in which Upland Southerners' regional heritage affected the evolution of political culture in Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. an outstanding interpretation of the motives and acts of a significant portion of the population of a significant portion of the country.

Etcheson's book is different from most earlier studies in that she is interested in the process of regional identification. The Midwest was the first arbitrarily denoted region in the country, and the clash of values between the southerners and Yankees who inhabited Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois shaped its political culture.

The book's strengths are also its weaknesses. Etcheson's material on northerners lacks the persuasiveness of her analysis of upland southerners.

Reviews:
  • Gajurus
A must read but for, perhaps, a rather limited audience. Highly recommended for genealogists and family historians whose ancestors made the trek from Tennessee and/or Kentucky in the first three or four decades of the 1800s to the southern sections of Illinois and Indiana. Ms Etcheson's writing is accessible for the non-historian but is scholarly at the same time. This book gives great insight into why there was such an exodus of small, subsistence farmers away from the slave owning states to what was viewed at the time as the great Northwest.
  • Valawye
Fascinating.
