Abstract:Land settlement between the Dan River tributaries suggest there were conditions among common whites that encouraged a sense of unity with elites. Applications from social theory explain why commoners supported slavery. Study of nineteenth century rural consumer culture indicates consumer purchasing was a consistent support for the common white perception of an egalitarian society.
