This is a portrait that highlights a powerful sense of Confederate patriotism and unity in the face of a determined adversary. Drawing on letters, diaries, and newpapers, the author shows that Southerners held not only a unflagging belief in their way of life, but also a widespread expectation of victory and a strong popular will closely attuned to military events. Contemporary historians hint that the South never had a change and many allege that the Confederacy lost the Civil War because of internal division etc., but the author argues we should not ask why the Confederacy collapsed so soon but rather how it lasted so long. He examines the Confederate experience through the actions and words of the people who lived it to show how the military and the home front responded to the war, endured great hardships, and assembled armies the fought with spirit and determination.
