Ruffin : family and reform in the Old South by David F Allmendinger( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a fascinating combination of intellectual and social history focusing on the life and thought of Edmund Ruffin, a 19th-century reformer whose activities in the movement for secession made him a symbol of the antebellum South. Although much has been written about Ruffin, this is the first examination of the connections between his family life, his thought, and his career in reform. Allmendinger shows, through careful analysis of Ruffin's personal papers, how Ruffin's family history informed his thinking and writing. His early experiences of isolation contributed to his valuable discoveries about soil fertility, which in turn guided his notion of a reconstruction of the rural Southeast led by individuals possessing the mentality of scientific farmers. Without this rejuvenation and fundamental restructuring of institutions, Ruffin believed, the southeastern United States would be faced with a Malthusian crisis of subsistence which would lead to the complete dissolution of the social system. An insightful analysis of the experiences of this influential thinker, Allmendinger's study offers a unique perspective on life in the antebellum South

Nat Turner and the rising in Southampton County by David F Allmendinger( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In August 1831, in Southampton County, Virginia, Nat Turner led a bloody uprising that took the lives of some fifty-five white people--men, women, and children--shocking the South. Nearly as many black people, all told, perished in the rebellion and its aftermath. Nat Turner and the Rising in Southampton County presents important new evidence about the violence and the community in which it took place, shedding light on the insurgents and victims and reinterpreting the most important account of that event, The Confessions of Nat Turner. Drawing upon largely untapped sources, David F. Allmendinger Jr. reconstructs the lives of key individuals who were drawn into the uprising and shows how the history of certain white families and their slaves--reaching back into the eighteenth century--shaped the course of the rebellion."--Publisher's Web site
