Southern Invincibility by Wiley Sword

Book Description

Southern pride-the notion that the South's character distinguishes it from the rest of the country-had a profound impact on how and why Confederates fought the Civil War, and continued to mold their psyche after they had been defeated. In "Southern Invincibility," award-winning historian Wiley Sword traces the roots of the South's belief in its own superiority and examines the ways in which that conviction contributed to the war effort, even when it became clear that the South would not win. Informed by thorough research, "Southern Invincibility" is the historical investigation of a psychology that continues to define the South.
