University Press of Mississippi

This chapter recaps the effects of Mississippi’s Lost Cause legend through the beginnings of the twenty-first century. As blacks within the state chipped away at the white supremacist social order, they failed to break the cultural impact and influence of the Lost Cause legend still celebrated in the state. Conservative Mississippians persist in clinging to the Lost Cause legend, fighting vehemently against the Civil Rights movement and the end of segregation, as well as anything that puts their combined Confederate/American identity in jeopardy.

Keywords:   Civil Rights movement, Lost Cause, Segregation, Confederate identity, American identity
