As with all progress, successful forward movement is proportional to the willingness of reactionary elements, and nowhere was this more evident than in the United States where the progressive policies of Roosevelt and Truman between 1932 and 1952 were tempered against strong conservative leanings in parts of the country who resisted the most far-reaching policies especially on social issues. This curious blend of the past and progress was not lost on a generation of men and women who were affected by these trends. This paper will trace the affects of the wedding of modernity and traditionalism in the worldview and life of General George C. Marshall.
