Because the South was predominantly agrarian, the early ethnic towns gave way to dispersed settlement, a situation noted by the Elliotts, Steen, Crass, Penner, and Forehand, Hartley, Beck, and Zierden. This dispersal may have lessened the social forces of ethnicity, as well as the need to maintain separate ethnic identity. Where urban centers existed, however, the impetus to form cultural and ethnic communities was far less than it was in the north. In part, cultural identity faded from the landscape because subsequent waves of immigration had much less in®uence on the South.
