If national and international attention establishes a definition of fame, the case of Shannon Faulkner fighting to be admitted to The Citadel may very well be one of the most famous cases ever to come out of South Carolina.This personal account of the first women at The Citadel uses Faulkner's and veteran women's lawsuits filed in the early 1990s to write about the good ole boy way of life in South Carolina. It is as much about how the state operates as it is about the litigants and a failure of leadership at The Citadel. Faulkner's suit is notable as a high-profile advance in women's equal protection under the law, but it makes sense only within a larger context of political, economic, and social life unique to the state. During litigation, The Citadel often described itself as the last dinosaur for its efforts to preserve an ancien régime in its male-only admissions policy to the Corps of Cadets. Local Counsel is the day-in-the-life story of the eight years of a sole practitioner's dinosaur hunt.The book is also an account of an attorney's personal reasons or motives for entering protracted civil rights litigation and the price paid for zealous representation. It is written to serve as a historical record from the point of view of a participant who had a unique point of view. Within a range of legal issues and strategies, the book raises the kind of questions that lawyers deal with everyday ? questions shared by the general public: When, if ever, does a case become no longer just the client's, but the lawyer's as well? What are the bounds of civility within a fierce defense?

Since the founding of the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1802, more than eight hundred military schools have existed in this country. The vast majority have closed their doors, been absorbed into other educational institutions, or otherwise faded away, but others soldier on, adapting to changing times and changing educational needs. While many individual institutions have had their histories written or their stories told, to date no single book has attempted to explore the full scope of the military school in American history. Cadets on Campus is the first book to cover the origin, history, and culture of the nation’s military schools—secondary and collegiate—and this breadth of coverage will appeal to historians and alumni alike. Author John Alfred Coulter identifies several key figures who were pivotal to the formation of military education, including Sylvanus Thayer, the “father of West Point,” and Alden Partridge, the founder of the school later known as Norwich University, the first private military school in the country. He also reveals that military schools were present across the nation, despite the conventional wisdom that most military schools, and, indeed, the culture that surrounds them, were limited to the South. Coulter addresses the shuttering of military schools in the era after the Vietnam War and then notes a curious resurgence of interest in military education since the turn of the century.

This book traces how and why the secession of the South during the American Civil War was accomplished at ground level through the actions of ordinary men. Adopting a micro-historical approach, Lawrence T. McDonnell works to connect small events in new ways - he places one company of the secessionist Minutemen in historical context, exploring the political and cultural dynamics of their choices. Every chapter presents little-known characters whose lives and decisions were crucial to the history of Southern disunion. McDonnell asks readers to consider the past with fresh eyes, analyzing the structure and dynamics of social networks and social movements. He presents the dissolution of the Union through new events, actors, issues, and ideas, illuminating the social contradictions that cast the South's most conservative city as the radical heart of Dixie.

Since its founding in 1842, The Citadel has provided generations of leaders to the state and nation. From its original purpose of providing an education to young men of South Carolina who would perform military duties for the state, it has evolved into an institution of national stature, highly regarded for both its academic reputation and its disciplined environment. Graduates of The Citadel have fought in every United States war since the Mexican War in 1846. Cadets have also achieved prominence in other fields, such as serving in leadership roles in state and national government, education, the professions, and business. With the help of over 200 black-and-white photographs, this work explores the development of The Citadel over the past 160 years, and included are sketches of its visionary founders, faculty members, and leaders. Descriptive vignettes highlight the success of the alumni and give insight into the experiences of the most important element of The Citadel: the South Carolina Corps of Cadets.
