About the Abbeville Institute
The Abbeville Institute was founded in 2002 in an effort to preserve the rich history, culture, and traditions of the American South. The Southern tradition offers a valuable counterweight to modern and post-modern American thought, culture, economics, and politics.
Over 200 Abbeville Institute affiliated scholars in all academic fields and disciplines from around the world have dedicated their studies and research to our mission to explore what is true and valuable in the Southern tradition. Our vision is a positive affirmation of the Southern people and their contributions to American society and history.
