Book excerpt: For decades, historians have debated the meaning and significance of Confederate nationalism and the role it played in the outcome of the Civil War. Yet they have paid little attention to the actual development and content of this Confederate ideology. In The Creation of Confederate Nationalism, Drew Gilpin Faust argues that coming to a fuller understanding of southern thought during the Civil War period offers a valuable refraction of the essential assumptions on which the Old South and the Confederacy were built. She shows the benefits of exploring Confederate nationalism “as the South’s commentary upon itself, as its effort to represent southern culture to the world at large, to history, and perhaps most revealingly, to its own people.”

Book excerpt: As rancorous debates over Confederate symbols continue, Robert Bonner explores how the rebel flag gained its enormous power to inspire and repel. In the process, he shows how the Confederacy sustained itself for as long as it did by cultivating the allegiances of countless ordinary citizens. Bonner also comments more broadly on flag passions--those intense emotional reactions to waving pieces of cloth that inflame patriots to kill and die. Colors and Blood depicts a pervasive flag culture that set the emotional tone of the Civil War in the Union as well as the Confederacy. Northerners and southerners alike devoted incredible energy to flags, but the Confederate project was unique in creating a set of national symbols from scratch. In describing the activities of white southerners who designed, sewed, celebrated, sang about, and bled for their new country's most visible symbols, the book charts the emergence of Confederate nationalism. Theatrical flag performances that cast secession in a melodramatic mode both amplified and contained patriotic emotions, contributing to a flag-centered popular patriotism that motivated true believers to defy and sacrifice. This wartime flag culture nourished Confederate nationalism for four years, but flags' martial associations ultimately eclipsed their expression of political independence. After 1865, conquered banners evoked valor and heroism while obscuring the ideology of a slaveholders' rebellion, and white southerners recast the totems of Confederate nationalism as relics of the Lost Cause. At the heart of this story is the tremendous capacity of bloodshed to infuse symbols with emotional power. Confederate flag culture, black southerners' charged relationship to the Stars and Stripes, contemporary efforts to banish the Southern Cross, and arguments over burning the Star Spangled Banner have this in common: all demonstrate Americans' passionate relationship with symbols that have been imaginatively soaked in blood.

Book excerpt: When Confederate men marched off to battle, southern women struggled with the new responsibilities of directing farms and plantations, providing for families, and supervising increasingly restive slaves. Drew Gilpin Faust offers a compelling picture of the more than half-million women who belonged to the slaveholding families of the Confederacy during this period of acute crisis, when every part of these women's lives became vexed and uncertain. In this UNC Press Short, excerpted from Mother's of Invention: Women of the Slaveholding South in the American Civil War, Drew Gilpin Faust explores the legendary hostility of Confederate women toward Yankee soldiers. From daily acts of belligerence to murder and espionage, these women struggled not only with the Yankee enemy in their midst but with the genteel ideal of white womanhood that was at odds with their wartime acts of resistance.

Book excerpt: "A very clear and forcefully argued treatment of the drive for cultural independence in the Confederacy. It is based on exhaustive study of periodicals, pamphlets, and all kinds of printed G matter produced during the Civil War. A most original and significant contribution to southern intellectual history and to the history of the Confederacy."---George C. Rable, author of Fredericksburg! Fredericksburg! "This carefully and exhaustively researched book brings into sharp focus the sheer number---and the sheer persistence ---of editors and educators who sought to create an intellectual culture in the South. Bernath's admirable study corrects anyone who thinks that wartime turmoil shut down the full-throated cry of antebellum Southern partisanship."---Steven Slowe, author of Doctoring the South: Southern Physicians and Everyday Medicine in the Mid-Nineteenth Century During Ihe Civil War, Confederates fought for much more than their political independence. They also fought to prove the distinctiveness of Ihe southern people and to legitimate their desire for a separate national existence through Ihe creation of a uniquely southern literature and culture. In this important new hook, Michael rlernalh follows the activities of a group of southern writers, thinkers, editors, publishers, educators, and ministers---whom he labels Confederate cultural nationalists---in order to trace the rise and fall of a cultural movement dedicated to liberating the South from its longtime dependence on northern hooks, periodicals, and teachers. This struggle for Confederate "intellectual independence" was seen as a vital part of the larger war effort. For southern nationalists, independence won on the battlefield would he meaningless as long as southerners remained in a stale of cultural "vassalage" to their enemy. Bernalh's exhaustive research into Confederate print literature reveals that Ihe war did not stop cultural life in Ihe South. Instead, wartime isolation sparked a tremendous literary outpouring, as southern writers and publishers rushed lo provide their new nation with its own native literature, one that surpassed in diversity and circulation anything before seen in the South. As the production of new Confederate periodicals, books, and textbooks accelerated at an astonishing rale and southerners look steps toward establishing their own native system of education, cultural nationalists believed they saw the Confederacy coalescing into a true nation. But it was not to be. In the end Confederates proved no more able to win their intellectual Independence than their political freedom, though they struggled mightily for both. By analyzing the motives driving the struggle for Confederate intellectual independence, by charting Its wartime accomplishments, and by assessing its failures, Bernath makes provocative arguments about the nature of Confederate nationalism, life within the Confederacy, and the perception of southern cultural distinctiveness.

Book excerpt: Nationalism in nineteenth-century America operated through a collection of symbols, signifiers citizens could invest with meaning and understanding. In Confederate Visions, Ian Binnington examines the roots of Confederate nationalism by analyzing some of its most important symbols: Confederate constitutions, treasury notes, wartime literature, and the role of the military in symbolizing the Confederate nation. Nationalisms tend to construct glorified pasts, idyllic pictures of national strength, honor, and unity, based on visions of what should have been rather than what actually was. Binnington considers the ways in which the Confederacy was imagined by antebellum Southerners employing intertwined mythic concepts—the "Worthy Southron," the "Demon Yankee," the "Silent Slave"—and a sense of shared history that constituted a distinctive Confederate Americanism. The Worthy Southron, the constructed Confederate self, was imagined as a champion of liberty, counterposed to the Demon Yankee other, a fanatical abolitionist and enemy of Liberty. The Silent Slave was a companion to the vocal Confederate self, loyal and trusting, reliable and honest. The creation of American national identity was fraught with struggle, political conflict, and bloody Civil War. Confederate Visions examines literature, newspapers and periodicals, visual imagery, and formal state documents to explore the origins and development of wartime Confederate nationalism.

Book excerpt: Historians often assert that Confederate nationalism had its origins in pre-Civil War sectional conflict with the North, reached its apex at the start of the war, and then dropped off quickly after the end of hostilities. Anne Sarah Rubin argues instead that white Southerners did not actually begin to formulate a national identity until it became evident that the Confederacy was destined to fight a lengthy war against the Union. She also demonstrates that an attachment to a symbolic or sentimental Confederacy existed independent of the political Confederacy and was therefore able to persist well after the collapse of the Confederate state. 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. Exploring the creation, maintenance, and transformation of Confederate identity during the tumultuous years of the Civil War and Reconstruction, Rubin sheds new light on the ways in which Confederates felt connected to their national creation and provides a provocative example of what happens when a nation disintegrates and leaves its people behind to forge a new identity.

Book excerpt: This master's thesis starts from the premise that Confederate nationalism was not just a political entity, but a cultural project. It examines the role of print culture in shaping a distinctive and unified Confederate community. Emerging on the eve of the Civil War, Confederate nationalism flourished due to the creation and dissemination of southern print culture through newspapers and magazines. This thesis approaches the development of Confederate cultural nationalism through a case study, Joseph Addison Turner, who wrote and edited a weekly journal, The Countryman, from 1862 to 1866. Through The Countryman, Turner advocated and shaped white southern beliefs and perceptions in an effort to unite Southerners around a common goal of an autonomous nation. By showing how Joseph Turner fostered a southern cultural movement to forge a patriotic bond amongst white Southerners, this research highlights the importance of print culture in the construction of Confederate nationalism.

Book excerpt: As a border state during the American Civil War, Maryland experienced social and cultural divisions among its population. As the Civil War continued, Maryland politicians and legislatures adopted a pro-Union stance. In 1864, the state adopted a new constitution that abolished slavery and disenfranchised those who aided the Confederacy. During the war, many pro-Confederate Marylanders exiled themselves from the state to register their allegiance with the Confederacy. While previous studies have explored the experiences of Maryland Confederates in comparison with their Union counterparts, limited historical analysis exists about the surge of enlistments in the summer and fall of 1862. This wave of Confederate Marylanders culminated in the formation of new Maryland organizations in General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. Confederate Marylanders' diaries, letters, and memoirs demonstrate how Confederate Maryland soldiers viewed themselves in the failed effort for Confederate nationhood. Throughout the war, the men of these Confederate units secured for Confederate Marylanders an outlet for the creation of a Confederate Maryland identity both during and after the Civil War. Sustained Confederate nationalism led to the creation of a Confederate culture in postwar Maryland.

Free book TConfederate Nationalism in Georgia, Louisiana, and Virginia During the American War, 1861-1865. This book was released on 2012 with total page 351 pages. Book excerpt: This dissertation revolves around the construction of Confederate identity in the states of Georgia, Louisiana, and Virginia and adds regional specificity into the discussion of Confederate nationalism. The "hodgepodge" nature of the Confederacy only emphasized the importance of understanding the foundation of Confederate nationalism and its uniformity, not regional variations. Whether or not Confederate identity formation during the war transcended state and regional variation or differed from place to place within these three Confederate states is the important question this study addresses. Confederate nationalism was not monolithic. Instead, this project identifies five themes which allowed southerners in the states of Georgia, Louisiana, and Virginia to construct an identity for themselves as Confederate citizens which they believed differed from the identity of their American counterparts. The five themes of Confederate nationalism were the American Revolution, religion, slavery, white supremacy, and states' rights. The five themes needed to accentuate the common connections which bonded citizens in the Confederacy together, highlight the differences between Confederate and American citizens, and provide justification for the war. The first four themes of Confederate nationalism promoted unity regardless of geographic location while the fifth theme of Confederate identity, states' rights, proved to be divisive. Within the state of Georgia, Governor Joseph E. Brown waged a campaign against conscription and the suspension of habeas corpus; two governmental policies he believed were detrimental to states' rights. In addition to questions about Confederate identity formation, this project also explores the lives of free African Americans and Jews who called these three states of the Confederacy their home. This study adds free African Americans back into the historical narrative of Confederate nationalism and re-examines their role in the seceded states in detail. This dissertation asks how the presence of free people of color and Jews impacted Confederate nationalism. Did the presence of free African Americans and Jews sustain or hinder Confederate nationalism in Georgia, Virginia, and Louisiana during the Civil War?
