Understanding Southern Culture
The Art of Manliness blog, which is usually somewhat tongue in cheek in a humorous sort of way, just recently posted a rather lengthy blog post on the notions of Honor in Southern culture. It is spectacularly well done and researched from a historical perspective. For someone from the South who gets rather touchy about the way Southerners are often thought of and portrayed in greater American culture, I found this article extremely thought provoking. For those who don't understand Southerners, I am going to point them to this article from now on. It is extremely well thought out and presented well.
