Southerners may have abandoned their dream of a political nation after Appomattox, but they preserved their cultural identity by blending Christian rhetoric and symbols with the rhetoric and imagery of Confederate tradition. Out of defeat emerged a civil religion that embodied the Lost Cause. As Charles Reagan Wilson writes in his new preface, "The Lost Cause version of the regional civil religion was a powerful expression, and recent scholarship affirms its continuing power in the minds of many white southerners."

Charles Reagan Wilson is Kelly Gene Cook Sr. Chair in History and professor of southern studies at the University of Mississippi. He is coeditor of the original Encyclopedia of Southern Culture.
