This chapter examines the situation of education and nation building in South Carolina after the Civil War. By 1864, South Carolina educators were creating a children's literature and textbook movement designed to prepare the young to take their places in the New Republic. The task of nation building in South Carolina was made more difficult by an educational system that was premodern.
