Interest in the South’s Lost Cause celebration is currently enjoying a revival. While Charles R. Wilson’s Baptized in Blood (1980) and Gaines M. Foster’s Ghosts of the Confederacy (1987) still remain the standard works on the subject, there are a number of graduate students whose research on southern women’s organizations, including the United Daughters of the Confederacy, promises to fill in the gaps of the existing scholarship. More recently in Living Monuments, R. B. Rosenburg has added yet another dimension to studies of the Lost Cause in his examination of Confederate soldiers’ homes.
