Summary
"Well into the final months of the Civil War, countless Confederate soldiers earnestly believed that victory lay just around the corner. How could this be? Jason Phillips reveals the deeply ingrained attitudes that shaped the reality of these diehards not only during the war but in the subsequent era, when the myth of the Lost Cause was born." "Drawing on soldiers' letters and diary entries from 1863 to 1865, this book explains how religious dogma and perceptions of Union barbarity and ineptitude affirmed many soldiers a view of an indomitable South."--BOOK JACKET
