Abstract
Why does someone willingly alienate himself from the society he lives in? This is exactly what the native white southerners who joined the Republican party after the war did. What forces are stronger than the desire for approval of one's actions by one's peers? The southern white who joined the party of Lincoln after the Civil War certainly knew such action would arouse the hostility of his friends and neighbors. These are the basic questions I have attempted to answer in the following study.
