That Southern Inferiority Complex

DeVoto, Bernard
January 1954
Saturday Evening Post;1/16/1954, Vol. 226 Issue 29, p27
The article focuses on the Southern inferiority complex in the U.S. Some Southerners passionately believe that historians have slighted the role of the South in the American history. To them, it seems that the American literature is always lacking in specific detail, thereby excluding the South in its important share in the development of the U.S. as a nation.
