In this monograph, Rod Andrew Jr. studies the development of southern military academies and land grant universities with military-training components. Outgrowths of the antebellum and postbellum periods, V.M.I., The Citadel, Texas A&M, Clemson and other such schools sought to instill discipline in the cadets they enrolled from across socioeconomic classes. One chapter considers the relationship between military schools and "the Lost Cause"; another chapter looks at historically black southern colleges that featured military programs.
