Their image of the South conformed to their image of the idealized feminine sphere; in northern eyes, the South became a region of refined domestic comfort, and the union of North and South restored the sense of Page 10 domestic harmony that northern society no longer possessed. Southern women, who seemed to have discovered the joys of domesticity precisely when northern women had grown weary of them, became the feminine ideal of many northern men. Finally, the specific pairing of a Yankee husband with a southern wife offered the northern man a symbolic vehicle for reasserting authority, for recapturing the sense of manly accomplishment which the Union soldier or the independent businessman had once known.

Just as the new code of masculinity focused more on individual character, so the free labor outlook stressed the individual laborer's ability to improve his economic and social standing. Viewing themselves as economic individuals striving in an uncertain and unpredictable market, northern men became more concerned with tempering and restraining their individual passions and feelings, with exercising physical and emotional control in order to better assure their advancement and success.

Novelists likewise paid tribute to southern white men and gave American culture a new set of regional icons. Perhaps none was more enduring than the one personified in Owen Wister's hugely successful novel of the early twentieth century, The Virginian.
