The Lost Cause is essentially a scholarly rendition of the causes of the Civil War, the battles within that war, and the abysmal results from a Southern point of view. Pollard’s arguments concerning the war’s origins are well made. Lincoln is often the center of the author’s attention and many accurate complaints about Lincoln's leadership are set forth. Lincoln was not a perfect leader, he did outright lie in the run up to the war, and he made the ultimate error of underestimating the ability of the South to defend itself.

Qucid
Written in 1866 by a Southern sympathizer with a stern picture of Jefferson Davis for its cover I expected this book to be bursting with rants about the righteous South and the murderous North. I was wrong. There are arguments about the correctness of the Southern position on the Constitution and slavery, Northern insults to the South, and notorious acts of Union brutality are recounted; however, harangues are mostly avoided.

The Lost Cause is essentially a scholarly rendition of the causes of the Civil War, the battles within that war, and the abysmal results from a Southern point of view. Mr. Pollard’s arguments concerning the war’s origins are well made. Mr. Lincoln is often the center of the author’s attention and many accurate complaints about Lincoln's leadership are set forth. Lincoln was not a perfect leader, he did outright lie in the run up to the war, and he made the ultimate error of underestimating the ability of the South to defend itself. It is clear Lincoln ignored warnings from Virginia, North Carolina, and other boarder states that they would leave the Union if he called up troops. For reasons that are unclear to this day Lincoln ignored or discounted these warnings with horrific results. Mr. Pollard also contends that Lincoln either lied during and immediately after the election or completely changed his position on slavery between 1861 and 1862. He further argues, with some conviction, that the war made upon the South was a war of retribution and murder rather than a war to put down a people in error as propagandized by Lincoln.

Mr. Pollard praises Lincoln for his ability to cause the South to fire the first shots of the Civil War and acknowledged how much this helped the North. The author thinks the way he did it was underhanded, but it worked. Modern historians now acknowledge Lincoln’s lies to Southern representatives before Ft Sumter and his attempts to get the South to fire the first shots. When Mr. Pollard wrote this work the North had not acknowledged these facts.

The book goes on to describe the many battles that scarred the American landscape in the war. These accounts are detailed, however, they are not accompanied by maps thereby making the battles extremely hard to follow. I suggest obtaining A Battlefield Atlas of the Civil War by Craig L. Symonds. The very detailed movements described by Pollard may not be accurate in all cases, even though the author works from documents rather than interviews. His overviews provide awareness of Southern thinking at each stage of the war.

Mr. Pollard deeply criticizes Southern leadership. He is openly disdainful of J. Davis and the first (provisional) Confederate Congress. He slams the Confederate bureaucracy and several Southern generals for stupid decisions. His comments on the defense, or lack thereof, of New Orleans abounds with venom for the actions and decisions of Confederate leaders and even the troops. Moreover, Mr. Pollard clearly sees the disaster that accompanied these events and how the loss of New Orleans completely crippled Southern chances for success. He continues these sharp perceptions throughout the book.

While this book defends the institution of slavery and often paints the actions of Lincoln as vile those are not valid reasons for rejection. Mr. Pollard clearly states the position taken by the Confederates and makes no apology for it. Plus, he accurately analyzes the progression of the war from the Southern perspective. This book brings new clarity to the era of the Civil War. It is like finding a book written by a Carthaginian scholar about the Punic Wars. To disregard it is an error. It is history’s job to recount the past accurately, and failing to know why the Confederates fought and what they thought about the war and its consequences is to deprive history of its most valuable insights.

When the author said that Southerners were somehow more civilized because they had succeeded in creating lives of
"Idleness and gaiety " I felt disgusted.

It’s important to know both sides to a conflict, specially one that affected a supposable “united people” like the War between the States.
