Anchored at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville is the cultural center of South Carolina's Piedmont. Today, residents and tourists often find themselves immersed among the charming shops and quaint cafes that line the avenues in the historic Main Street district. A revitalized area today, Greenville's Main Street was the commercial center of the town during the life of William Coxe, a Greenville photographer who acquired many early images and who brilliantly extended the collection with his own photographs. Remembering Greenville: Photographs from the Coxe Collection explores Greenville during the first half of the 20th century. Stunning black-and-white images enlighten readers about the "old" Greenville that virtually disappeared as the small city was transformed into a large metropolitan area. These images, taken from the 1900s to the 1960s, depict Furman University and Greenville Women's College, both then located in Greenville's downtown; Camp Wetherill, Greenville's Spanish-American War training camp; and such personalities as an older, but still legendary, "Shoeless" Joe Jackson.

Greenville's textile heritage is what made the community the economic force it is today. From its antebellum beginnings with only a handful of mills, Greenville continued to grow industrially as more and more Northern investors saw financial opportunity in the area. With its notable feats, such as having the largest textile mill under one roof to its many mills fighting off "flying squadrons" during the General Textile Strike of 1934, the county's textile past is as rich and colorful as the fabrics it produced. Greenville's ascension to the "Textile Capital of the World" was unfortunately followed by the flood of overseas goods, resulting in the closing of many Upstate institutions. Thought these mills are now silent, their efforts are what attracted so many other industries to the area.

Since the Cherokee Nation hunted the verdant hills in what is now known as Greenville County, South Carolina, the search for economic prosperity and diversity has defined the history of this thriving Upstate region and its expanding urban center. In a sweeping chronicle of the city and county, historian Archie Vernon Huff traces Greenville's business tradition and details its political, religious, and cultural evolution. The region portrayed by Huff has historically defied many Southern norms to distinguish itself economically and ideologically from its neighbors. In addition to tracing Greenville's economic growth, Huff identifies other hallmarks of the region, including the fierce independence of its various populations. He discusses the often conflicting interests and the individual contributions of the area's African Americans, mill workers, business elite, and urban dwellers. Looking beyond but never straying far from the economics of the region, Huff also assesses the impact of Greenville's peaceful but grudging end to segregation, strong evangelical Protestant tradition, conservative arts programs, and influential role in South Carolina's emerging two-party political system.

The river inundated the homes of nearly one million people, helped elect Huey Long governor and made Herbert Hoover president, drove hundreds of thousands of blacks north, and transformed American society and politics forever.

In fact, they have contempt for the very people they claim to represent ...
