Scope and Content Note

This address titled, Annual Address Before The Clariosophic And Euphradian Societies Of The South Carolina College delivered by Reverend Stephen Elliott (1806-1866), Bishop of Georgia, focuses on keeping tradition and Southern culture alive. The Reverend argues that colleges are the way in which the venerable traditions are passed on, and that students represent the present and their family’s past with their behavior. Since it was delivered in 1859 and published in 1860, the speech provides valuable insight into the beliefs of the Southern religious establishment right before South Carolina became the first state to secede from the Union in December of 1860.
