Rubin, Anne Sarah
Chapel Hill, NC: University of North Carolina Press
In addressing the rise and fall of Confederate national identity, Rubin challenges accepted notions asserting that the political Confederacy, with its weak institutional infrastructure, was toppled by April 1865. But the Confederate national identity persisted well after that collapse. White Southerners redefined symbols and figures of the failed state as emotional touchstones and political rallying points in the struggle to retain local (and racial) control, even as former Confederates took the loyalty oath and applied for pardons in droves.
