This dissertation is a comparative analysis of the yeomanry of Forsyth and Hancock counties in Georgia during the ten years prior to the Civil War. The premise argues that definitive characteristics of yeoman culture can only be found in counties that are dominated the yeomanry. Studies that find yeomen in planter dominated counties are defined those yeomen by the institutions that are created by and serve the planter society.
