Living Monuments: Confederate Soldiers' Homes in the New South

While battlefield parks and memorials erected in town squares and cemeteries have served to commemorate southern valor in the Civil War, Confederate soldiers' homes were actually 'living monuments' to the Lost Cause, housing the very men who made that cause their own.  R.B. Rosenburg provides us the first account of the establishment and operation of these homes for disabled and indigent souther veterans, which had their heyday between the 1880s and the 1920s.  By R.B. Rosenburg.  Hardcover, 256 pages.
