In 'The Confederate Carpetbaggers, ' Daniel E. Sutherland examines the lives of those southern men and women who moved north between 1865 and 1881. Dealing with their various motives for moving north, problems of adaptation to northern society, attempts to find new identities, and efforts to maintain personal ties with other Confederates in the North as well as with old friends in the South, Sutherland provides a detailed and illuminating account of the contributions these displaced southerners made to the financial, literary, artistic, and political life of the nation.
