§ 12. Southern Histories.


The Southern histories of the war pass through the two stages just described in the Northern histories. Immediately after the conflict ended there were published such books as Edward Albert Pollard’s The Lost Cause (1866) and Alexander Hamilton Stephens’s Constitutional View of the Late War between the States (2 vols., 1868–70), both warmly Southern. So much belated that it might have been less apologetic was Jefferson Davis’s Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government (2 vols., 1881). It was, however, what might have been expected under the circumstances, an official statement of the Southern side of the question. No fair and ample Southern history of the war has been published.   26
