The Confederate Image
Prints of the Lost Cause

by Mark E. Neely Jr., Harold Holzer, and Gabor S. Boritt

Softcover, 288 pages, 8-1/2" x 11", 20 color illustrations, 121 b&w illustrations,
Published Fall/Winter 2000
University of North Carolina Press

From the publisher:
First published in 1987, The Confederate Image examines the popular lithographs and engravings cherished by Southerners during and after the Civil War. These images helped sustain and revive Southern identity following the collapse of the Confederacy. (Though, ironically, most were actually crafted by Northern artisans.) The book focuses on prints of the three most prominent Southern figures of the conflict--Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, and Stonewall Jackson--but also discusses prints of other important Confederates as well as the contributions of the short-lived Southern Illustrated News.

"A well-researched and interesting sidelight into a world of illusion."--New York Times Book Review

"More than just a picture book. . . . [It] tells a fascinating story of the creation of these images and how they added to or, at times, ran counter to the creation of the myth that is known as the Lost Cause."--Chicago Tribune

About the author
Mark E. Neely Jr. is McCabe-Greer Professor of Civil War History at Pennsylvania State University. Harold Holzer is vice president for communications at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and, with Neely, author of The Union Image: Popular Prints of the Civil War North. Gabor S. Boritt is Robert C. Fluhrer Professor of Civil War Studies at Gettysburg College and director of the Civil War Institute.
