Trouble in Goshen

University Press of Mississippi

The Colonists set about to demonstrate middle-class attributes; they did. In Chapter IV, Life and Times at Dyess, the details of community building and civic pride, are paired with the struggle of the bosses at Dyess to maintain control. More details about the dissolution of the Colony; the machinations of Governor Bailey; the agitation among the colonists and the alienation of some of them comprise the themes of this chapter. Life and Time at Dyess narrates the middle-class aspirations and attainment of the plain folk.
