For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
The Antebellum(meaning "prewar", notable pre American Civil War) era
was(approx.)1830-1860(1865 depending on how you look at it), hence the term,
Antebellum Home, such as one built in the 1830's. I would suggest you find a
better history book. :-)
