Synopsis

Military training was a prominent feature of higher education across the 19th-century south. Virginia Military Institute and the Citadel, as well as land-grant schools such as Texas A&M, Auburn, and Clemson, organized themselves on a military basis, requiring their male students to wear uniforms, join a corps of cadets, and subject themselves to constant military discipline. Several southern black colleges, including Hampton Institute and Florida A&M, also adopted a military approach. Challenging assumptions about a distinctive "southern military tradition", Rob Andrew demonstrates that southern military schools were less concerned with preparing young men than with instilling broader values of honour, patriotism, civic duty, and virtue. Southerners had a remarkable desire to reconcile militarism with republicanism, Andrew says, and following the Civil War, the Lost Cause legend further strengthened the link in southerners' minds between military and civic virtue.

Though traditionally black colleges faced struggles that white schools did not, notes Andrew, they were motivated by the same conviction that powered white military schools - the belief that a good soldier was by definition a good citizen.

Rod Andrew Jr. formerly taught history at The Gtadel and is now assistant professor of history at Clemson University. He has served as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps and is currently a major in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.
