Before the Civil War, Quakers in the South were a despised minority – anti-slavery, anti-war, anti-secession. Sojourners in a hostile region, they kept to themselves or moved away. By the time the war ended in 1865, most Southern Quakers had migrated to the Midwest. But by 1920, their numbers in the South had swollen into the thousands. Many were leaders of the “New South.” And much of their distinctiveness has vanished. They were sojourners no more, physically or spiritually.
