Synopsis: The Neglected Thread: An Antebellum Journal from the Calhoun Community was originally edited by Delle Mullen Craven and published by USC in 1951. Historians and genealogists discovered The Neglected Thread as a resource, as did general readers. The celebrated book has been out of print for a generation. The new edition will be welcome because it continues to make this classic available to a readership that has a growing awareness of its value. Mary Moragné's journal is one of those rare books that should never go out of print. Mary Moragné, granddaughter of Huguenot refugee Pierre Moragné, kept a journal of her family life and travels, her literary aspirations, and her own psychological attitudes in the 1830s and 1840s. The diarist lived at Oakwood, the family plantation in Bordeaux, and spent time in Willington, Mt. Carmel, and Abbeville, South Carolina in a community noted for the homes of the Calhoun family, most notable among its members, John C. Calhoun, of Senator George McDuffie, of Governor Patrick Noble, and of Dr. Moses Waddel. The story presented by Mary Elizabeth Moragné occupies a quiet, yet often not so quiet corner of the antebellum South. She re-creates the story of lives experienced not only by ordinary men and women but also by famous people acting within their particular time and place in a fashion that provides drama and insights way beyond fictionalized sagas. Her journal, which she called "The Neglected Thread," offers a unique understanding of the evolution of life during a period of the nineteenth century and its impact on the emerging nation's social, religious, racial, political, and feminist issues.
