Measuring political change at the cultural level is a process that has long divided political scientists and historians. By focusing on two socially, economically, and culturally distinct Texas counties during Reconstruction, this thesis presents an example of political change. Collin County, Texas experienced a cultural shift from 1861 to 1876 resulting from the traumatic events of war, military rule, and the natural processes of enculturation and oppositional politics.
