Masters of the big house : elite slaveholders of the mid-nineteenth-century South by William Kauffman Scarborough ( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this volume, William Kauffman Scarborough unveils new information about one of the most powerful groups in American history, the 340 wealthiest aristocratic planters who owned 250 or more slaves in the census years of 1850 and 1860. The identification and tabulation in every slaveholding state of these lords of economic, social, and political influence reveals a highly learned class of men who set the tone for southern society and - despite their racism and Yankeephobia - evinced the qualities of honor, generosity, and even grandeur associated with the term "southern gentleman." Scarborough examines in detail the demographics of elite families, the educational philosophy and religiosity of the nabobs, their responses to the sectional crisis of their time, and gender relations in the Big House." "Also recounted are planters' slave management methods, their contributions and sacrifices during the Civil War, and their adjustment to the travails of Reconstruction and a postwar world alien to the one they had dominated."--BOOK JACKET

Ruffin attended several secession conventions, and as a member of the Palmetto Guard he was accorded the honor of firing the first shot on Fort Sumter. The diary contains vivid eyewitness accounts of the hanging of John Brown on December 2, 1859, and the activities and changing moods in Charleston during the hectic months of March and April of 1861. Ruffins' detailed description of the two-day bombardment of Sumter is unexcelled. The Diary of Edmund Ruffin is of supreme importance as a chronicle of political attitudes, moods, and motives in the South during the most critical period in its history.
