The Abbeville Principles & Purpose

Donald W. Livingston

The history of southern culture is as important to the world  as the history of many entire nations.

Southern Culture represents a significant part of the American lifestyle we know and love today. However, many modern historians have tried to reduce the entirety of southern history to only slavery and treason. Our purpose at the Abbeville Institute is to highlight and accentuate the successes of southern culture and how it applies to todays life, as well as preserving the whole picture of what it truly means to be “southern.”
