Book Description:

Heather Cox Richardson says in this new book that the North’s victory in the Civil War, which ended slavery and oligarchy and gave the country a “new birth of freedom,” was short-lived. Settlers from the East moved into the West, where the taking of Mexican lands at the end of the Mexican-American War and how Native Americans were treated cemented racial hierarchies. The people of the Old South moved to the West. Both were based on extractive industries, like cotton in the North and mining, cattle, and oil in the South. This gave rise to a white ruling elite that did well even after slavery was outlawed, the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments were passed, and the West grew economically.

How the South Won the Civil War tells the story of the American paradox, the competing claims of equality and white dominance that have always been a part of the country. Who was the best example of a “new American?” At the beginning of the country, the independent, freedom-loving “yeoman farmer” from the East inspired and symbolized the Revolution. After the Civil War, it was the cowboy’s job to protect his land and women from “savages” and to keep his country safe from its government. As new states joined the Union at the end of the 1800s, western and southern leaders found things they had in the joint. During the New Deal and World War II, resources, like vast amounts of federal money, and people continued to move to the West. Starting with Barry Goldwater, “Movement Conservatives” said they were like cowboys and worked with Dixiecrats to bring back the ideas of the Confederacy. The “strategy of the South” worked. The spirit of the Old South has never gone away, and the fight for equal rights is still going on.
