I just got my subscription and I’m loving it so far. I think the best part is that I have easy access to ask questions; money well spent.
My questions so far regarding something brought up in the “Virginia and the Cavaliers” lecture. Who exactly are the “Cavaliers?” If I understand it correctly, it’s religious, yes? Is it similar to Mt. Calvary?
I am a immigrant to Georgia from the North, and have fell in love with the South, southern history and culture. This paticular lecture struck a cord. Do the rest focus on southern history as well?
The term cavalier is derived from the French word chevalier and simply means “horseman.” The royalists in England adopted the name to differentiate their cause from the parliamentarians and the name stuck during the English Civil War of the 1640s. It has nothing to do with religion.
