The Civil War plays a relatively small role in this particular body of work on southern Appalachia. Henry Shapiro was the first modern scholar to seriously consider how the war's legacy was carefully shaped by Appalachians seeking to portray themselves and their region in a beneficial light. Regional commentaries through much of the nineteenth century had been primarily travel narratives and firsthand descriptions of scenic vistas and flora and fauna, along with observations of the often quaint customs and folk life of southern highlanders, or local-color writing, which conveyed much of the same in fictional form.
