Making the American Thoroughbred free pdf Excerpt from Making the American Thoroughbred: Especially in Tennessee, 1800-1845 The original purpose of this volume was to show the extent to which the raising and racing of thoroughbreds was carried on in Tennessee during the first half century, or more, of the State's existence. Investigation developed that the breeding and turf interests of Tennessee were so interwoven with these interests in other states, the scope of the volume had to be enlarged to the point indicated by the title. Most books about thoroughbreds of the period considered here are devoted chiefly to the science of breeding and methods of training and to the physical well-being of the horse, and are of interest only to horsemen. This volume endeavors to emphasize the effect that all these theories and experiments had on the customs and habits of the people. The labor system, the code duello, the religious camp-meetings and the open-house hospitality, of the "antebellum" South have all been given their just share of attention by historians. But the origin, growth and extent of the thoroughbred industry have not, as far as I have observed, received any consideration whatever by any book purporting to treat of fife in any Southern state. In this volume will be found material upon which the historian of the future may base a chapter on "The America of Sir Archy," or "The Tennessee of Leviathan," that will rival in interest Green's chapter on "The England of Shakespeare."
