Confederate Defeat and the Lost Cause

Not much going on today, but I did want to pass on a short video produced by the Florida Humanities Council that explores Confederate defeat and the evolution of the Lost Cause. It hits all the main points and is ideal for classroom use.

    Thank you so much for posting this video. It really sums up the whole Lost Cause movement. It is important that people continue to work to discredit these myths.
