Reply To: Lecture 2: Virginia and the Cavaliers


Very good lecture. I wanted to understand this correctly, are you saying that the “southern drawl” is proper English coming from the culture in southern England?

I never thought of reading Shakespeare with my southern accent. That’s awesome.

Culture, I think is very neglected in history class (or maybe I didn’t pay close enough attention because of the boring fact memorization). These cultural understandings put everything in a better perspective because you can see the how and why of human action that led to the events that happened.
