The conclusion discusses Mississippi’s immediate postwar period from mid- to late 1865. In particular, it focuses on the Christmasrebellion of that year in order to demonstrate how white Mississippianscontinued their attempts to uphold the racial hierarchy against freed people’scontinued rejection of white dominance. This struggle dominated Mississippi’ssociopolitical landscape through Reconstruction and beyond. Unionforces won the war, but they could not suppress the continued influence ofracial loyalties, which exerted a powerful influence over defeated Confederatesoldiers and Southern civilians.
