Of course, many stayed home. My own father returned from overseas and farmed part time working in a saw mill, and later logging. Eventually he gave up farming to no one's sorrow! You have probably read the book 'Now Let Us Praise Famous Men', which describes living conditions of several families in rural Alabama in the 1930s. There was a sequel of sorts written later describing the descendants of these same families - 'And Their Children After Them'. Both are very interesting in their depictions of their lives and the cotton culture of the South.
