Praise for Respectable and Disreputable: Leisure Time in Antebellum Montgomery, Alabama

About the Book
Despite their serious expressions in surviving portraits and photos, antebellum Montgomerians liked to play. From lecture societies to circuses, Jeff Benton describes the wide range of recreational activities they enjoyed and how their interests changed as Montgomery evolved from a frontier town into the founding city of the Confederacy.
