Our Country First, Then Greenville by Courtney L. Tollison Hartness
Published July 2023.
Places Greenville’s experience during World War I within the context of the progressive era to better understand the rise of this New South city.
Our Country First, Then Greenville explores Greenville’s home-front experience of race relations, dramatic population growth (the number of Greenville residents nearly tripled between the 1900 and 1930s), the women’s suffrage movement, and the contributions of African Americans and women to Greenville’s history. This important work features photos of Greenville, found in archival collections throughout the country and dating back over one hundred years.
