Edward E. Baptist looks to dispel the myth of the Old South and it's imposition upon the documented history of Middle Florida. Baptist contends that Middle Florida's history must be looked at not as a cascade of inevitability leading up to the Civil War, but as a region that underwent complicated transitions due to migration and settlements. Illustrations and an appendix with statistical tables are included.
