Abstract

JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Summer 2011) due to their public nature and the necessity of a lady's touch for financial success, taverns/boarding houses were part of the vanguard of slowly evolving standards of acceptable feminine behavior. In the third and final section, three essays explore divergent family types and their implications for societal order. First, Andrew Frank's ``Family Ties'' narrates the life of George Stinson, a white unlicensed storekeeper with a Native spouse in the heart of Creek Territory. During the decade prior to removal, Stinson evaded federal action against his activities by skillful employment of Creek kinship and matrilineal authority. Leading up to the Trail of Tears, Frank offers an effective contrast between assertions of southern state authority against perceptions of Native autonomy. Next, Christopher Olsen's ``White Families and Political Culture in the Old South'' explores the intricate social web of families, kin, and neighborhoods that influenced public discourse and political action. While planter families displayed the greatest power, all classes contributed to the communal nature of the process. Olsen broadens our understanding of the pervasive influence of family life over rural political life and presents a case in point of self-conscious institution building (via kinship)
