This concluding chapter offers a balance sheet for this experience and what it reveals about slavery, secession, the Southern war effort, and the connections binding these things together. It suggests the significance of this episode for subsequent Southern history — and especially for the Southern elite's attempt to regain its footing in a postwar, post-slavery nation.
