Lost Cause: A New Southern History of the War of the Confederates by Edward Alfred Pollard

When originally published in 1867, this book was described as "comprising a full and authentic account of the rise and progress of the late southern Confederacy - the campaigns, battles, incidents, and adventures of the most gigantic struggle of the world's history, drawn from official sources, and approved by the most distinguished Confederate leaders."

Edward A Pollard (1831-1872) was Editor of the Richmond Examiner during the Civil War; generally acknowledged as the ablest and most prolific Southern writer of the period.

Since the victors usually get to write history as they desire most accounts of the war for southern independence are slanted with the northern view. Pollard presents the southern perspective in great detail. It is not only a good history lesson but is written with a lot of flair and the narrative moves well, particularly as he describes all the important battles of the war. If all you "know" of the so called war between the states is what you learned in school this book will be a real eye opener, especially if you are a southerner.
