Louise Cassels touches on such enduring historical themes as southerners' sense of place and antipathy toward the federal government as she struggles to maintain equilibrium through life-changing circumstances. Throughout the text her extreme pride and patriotism are set against profound feelings of bitterness and loss. Detailing the period of evacuation and resettlement from 1950 to 1952, The Unexpected Exodus recalls in words and pictures the dramatic personal consequences of the cold war on the American South through the narrative of one uprooted family.

Kari Frederickson shows how the needs of the expanding national security state, in combination with the corporate culture of DuPont, transformed the economy, landscape, social relations, and politics of this corner of the South. The SRP's story is notably dramatic; however, Frederickson argues, it is far from unique.

The Unexpected Exodus: How the Cold War Displaced One Southern Town (Southern Classics). Anthropology has a role to play in attending to this and to the replacement of one defective social contract with another one based on emotion and violence. -Mark Maguire""Social Anthropology"" (08/28/2015)". The Theater of Operations" is an important, well-argued book comes at a time when it is highly relevant and needed.

In late 1950, amid escalating cold-war tensions, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission announced plans to construct facilities to produce plutonium and tritium for use in hydrogen bombs. One such facility, the Savannah River Plant, was built at a cost of $1.3 billion at a site that encompassed more than 315 square miles in South Carolina's Barnwell, Allendale, and Aiken counties. Some fifteen hundred families residing in small communities within the new plant's borders were forced to leave their homes. The largest of the affected towns was Ellenton, in Aiken County, with a population of 760 residents. Detailing the period of evacuation and resettlement from 1950 to 1952, The Unexpected Exodus recalls in words and pictures the dramatic personal consequences of the cold war on the American South through the narrative of one uprooted family. Louise Cassels touches on such enduring historical themes as southerners' sense of place and antipathy toward the federal government as she struggles to maintain equilibrium through life-changing circumstances.

I am married to an author, JC Cassels, whose family was at the center of this story. She is the family historian as well. Her father Monte, was only a year or so old when they moved from Ellenton. His father, Sumpter, was Louise's brother and was a shareholder on the cash repository charter. This story is a central part of Cassel's family lore. When we have family reunions, and get togethers during the holidays, Louise's book is always a topic of conversation. This is so much more than a book. It is a window into the very soul of a God fearing community who wanted nothing more than to be remembered for the salt of the earth people that they were. I can attest to the character of these people. Their legacy lives on in through the great grandchildren who are scattered throughout South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. They love their story. They love their country. And most of all they love God. The Unexpected Exodus is worthy of study for anyone who wishes an insight into the simple needs and dreams of southern folk who live close to the land and understand the importance of close knit communities and family values. It is worthy of note at how little the people questioned the needs of the government and their motivation in the removal of the town. How very different are the attitudes of modern Americans when faced with such matters today. It is well worth the couple of hours it will take you to read this tome. Amen.
