About the Abbeville Institute
The Abbeville Institute was founded in 2002 in an effort to preserve the history and culture of the American South. Our efforts are to view the South’s history through an academic lens to help others understand the rich traditions and culture that was born here.
The Institute is operated by a group of scholars from the American South who have dedicate their studies and research to the cause. Our goal is to never rewrite history or erase the past, but to remove the negative stereotype that hangs over the South.
