Lesson 12 Study Guide . . .

We begin with a simple question to address any possible confusion caused by the title of the lesson and chapter. What is "antebellum"?

You use the prefix daily, at least in abbreviation. In terms of time of day "a.m." in the acronym "antemeridian" refers to the time before noon, or midday. Then antebellum is a time period before something happened. The Latin scholars in class already recognize that bellum means war. Antebellum, then, refers to the time before the war.

An interesting digression might be to note that bellum evolved from duellum. You know that a duel is a fight. Latin for war was first duellum (as in a duel) and evolved into bellum (a war).

We Southerners seems to be egocentric thinking there is but "ONE" war to discuss, that being the Civil War. Antebellum is the time period (roughly 1820-1861) before the Civil War.
