Antebellum Era


Antebellum Era 1836 to 1860, Era before Civil War
Blackface Makeup, initially burnt cork or coal, applied to the faces and limbs of white performers, such as antebellum-era minstrel actor Thomas "Daddy" Rice, to give them an exaggeratedly black appearance—far blacker than any African American.
Bourgeoisie, Bourgeois The middle class. The adjectival form is bourgeois, as in the sentence "Melville enjoyed mocking bourgeois culture in his novels."
Nativism, Nativist, Nativists Opposition to immigration on the grounds that an influx of foreigners will marginalize the English language, undermine American culture, destabilize American politics, and weaken the economic status of American workers.
Cavalier Originally, a Cavalier was a person who supported the absolutist Catholic, King Charles I, in his power struggles with the English Parliament during the seventeenth century (especially during the English civil war of the 1640s).
Code Duello An elaborate set of 26 rules for dueling and the code of honor by which elite gentlemen were expected to conduct themselves.
Minstrelsy The extremely popular form of stage entertainment in which whites performed in blackface and caricatured black people for predominantly white audiences in the antebellum era (the genre actually lasted well into the early twentieth century).
Spectator Sports They have been around since the ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Aztecs, and Mayans, but the modern spectator sports industry did not really take shape until the nineteenth century.
