Quote of the day, July 29

Carl L. Becker, from The United States: An Experiment in Democracy (1920)

“Virginia was in fact a landowning aristocracy, without nobility or merchant class, or any considerable small peasant farming class; and the other Southern colonies, except North Carolina, were on the whole similar to Virginia in these respects.”
