Formation of the Lost Cause

Here’s Phillip Greenwalt speaking about the lost cause myth and how it came about. The video’s description reads, “Phillip Greenwalt talked about how Southerners coped with the loss of the Confederacy following the Civil War. He argued that many of their writings served as the foundation of the Lost Cause view of the war.” He gave this talk at the 2015 Emerging Civil War Symposium.

He could use some work on presentation skills, but overall it’s not a bad presentation.
