The Last West and the New South, 1865-1900
American social development has been continually beginning over again on the Frontier. This perennial rebirth, this fluidity of American life, this expansion westward with its new opportunities, its continuous touch with the simplicity of primitive society, furnish the forces dominating American character. The true point of view in the history of this nation is not the Atlantic coast, it is the Great West.
- Frederick Jackson Turner, 1893
“Hurrah for Greer County! The land of the free,
The land of the bedbug, grasshopper, and flea;
I’ll sing of its praises, I’ll tell of its fame;
While starving to death on my government claim.”
