This study examines the rise and fall of the Savannah Cricket Club in 1859. It demonstrates that while cricket had deep historical roots in Georgia, there were specific reasons for the creation of the SCC in 1859. Most important of these was the players' own perception of their masculine identity, and the opportunity that cricket offered as a forum for its expression. By 1860, however, the approaching Civil War meant that military activity replaced sport as the main forum for expressing manliness. This study aims to shed new light on the interaction of sport, leisure and gender in antebellum Southern society.
