Abstract and Keywords

The fortunes of the Republican Party in the American South have turned 180 degrees in just over a century. Having first been introduced to the South by the victorious federal government after the Civil War, and consequently reviled by the white southern establishment, by the early 1980s the southern wing of the Republican Party was leading a national Republican revival. This article traces the historical evolution of southern Republicanism from its roots in Reconstruction to its modern prominence in southern and national politics.

Keywords: Republican Party, American South, conservative mainstream, Republican revival, Reconstruction, southern politics
