 Antebellum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Antebellum is a Latin word meaning "before war" (ante means before and bellum war).
The Antebellum Period in the Southern United States is viewed by some with a kind of sentimental nostalgia as an idealized agrarian and chivalric society.
This nostalgic view is variously due to the cultural memory of the great prosperity of that time later lost to the widespread destruction of Southern infrastructure and society by the Union Army (particularly during Sherman's March to the Sea) and to the resulting resentment by former Confederate Army soldiers and others toward the Union forces.

 EH.Net Encyclopedia: Antebellum Banking in the United States
Thus, at the onset of the antebellum period (defined here as the period between 1820 and 1860), urban residents were familiar with the intermediary function of banks and used bank-supplied currencies (deposits and banknotes) for most transactions.

In antebellum American, when a bank made a loan, the borrower was typically handed banknotes with a face value equal to the dollar value of the loan.

Some settlers, perhaps younger sons who could not be accommodated by further division of the parental holdings, might have rented or sharecropped land in the hope of eventually securing the means to purchase their own farms.
