The Lost Cause1 The Lost Cause is the name commonly given to a literary and intellectual movement that sought to reconcile the traditional Southern white society to the defeat of the Confederate States of America in the Civil War.
White Southerners sought consolation in attributing their loss to factors beyond their control and to betrayals of their heroes and cause. Those who contributed to the movement tended to portray the Confederacy's cause as noble and most of the Confederacy's leaders as exemplars of old-fashioned chivalry, defeated by the Union armies not through superior military skill, but by overwhelming force.
They also tended to condemn Reconstruction. The term Lost Cause first appeared in the title of an book by the historian Edward A. Pollard, The Lost Cause: However, it was the articles written for the Southern Historical Society by Lt.
Early in the s that established the Lost Cause as a long-lasting literary and cultural phenomenon. Early's original inspiration for his views may have come from General Robert E. In his farewell order to the Army of Northern Virginia, Lee spoke of the "overwhelming resources and numbers" that the Confederate army fought against.
The Lost Cause helped Southerners to cope with the social, political, and economic changes after the Civil War especially in the oppressive Reconstruction era. Some of the main tenets of the Lost Cause movement were that: Confederate generals such as Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson represented the virtues of Southern nobility.
This nobility was contrast most significantly in comparisons between U. The Northern generals, were characterized as men with low moral standards who engaged in vicious campaigns against Southern civilians such as Sherman's March to the Sea and Philip Sheridan's burning of the Shenandoah Valley in the Valley Campaigns of Losses on the battlefield were inevitable and were blamed on Northern superiority in resources and manpower.
Losses were also the result of betrayal and incompetence on the part of certain subordinates of General Lee, such as General James Longstreet. Longstreet was the object of blame because of his association with Grant, conversion to the Republican Party, and other actions during Reconstruction.
While states' rights was not emphasized in the declarations of secession, the Lost Cause focused on the defense of states' rights, rather than preservation of slavery as the primary cause that led eleven Southern states to secede.
Secession was seen as a justifiable constitutional response to Northern cultural and economic aggressions against the Southern way of life.
Slavery was fictionally presented as a benign institution, and the slaves were treated well and cared for and loyal and faithful to their benevolent masters.
The most powerful images and symbols of the Lost Cause were Robert E. Lee and Pickett's Charge. Following the war Lee acquired a god-like persona. He was deified as a leader whose soldiers would loyally follow him into every fight no matter how desperate.
Thus he became the figure head of the Lost Cause. He was cast as the ideal of the antebellum Southern gentleman, an honorable and pious man who selflessly served Virginia and the Confederacy.Expanded THIRD Edition, with hundreds of new pages, 4 NEW CHAPTERS, and dozens of new and additional images!
