The Lost Cause, a novel written in 1867 by Edward Pollard is an important reference to many historians today. It was one of the first books written about the Civil War and was also the first to deal with military tactics. It showed a somewhat biased view for the South but on the most part the information was helpful. Along with the military tactics, the author also describes the economic, political and social differences between the North and South. Written by a well-acclaimed editor of the Examiner, it was a bestseller soon after the war ended.
