Prof. J. Vincent Lowery (Humanistic Studies and History) recently published an essay titled “Preparing the Next Generation for Massive Resistance: The Historical Pageantry of the Children of the Confederacy, 1866-1965” in Children and Youth During the Civil War Era (New York University Press, 2012), a collection of essays edited by James Marten, Marquette University professor and chair of the history department. Lowery’s essay examines the ways that southern white youths who participated in the C of C were inculcated with memories of the Civil War by the United Daughters of the Confederacy to “protect” the children from the “corrupting” influences of Communism, integrationism, and youth culture and, perhaps more significantly, to prepare them to continue to defend a peculiar “southern way of life” according to the standard set by their Confederate ancestors once their own time came to take the battlefield.
