This collection of essays--which also includes a previously
unpublished narrative by an original settler-- examines the
fascinating experiences of southern Confederate exiles in Brazil
and their continuing legacy.
During the late 1860s Southerners dissatisfied with the outcome
of the Civil War and fearful of the extent of Union reprisals
migrated to Brazil to build a new life for themselves. The"
Confederados"--the great majority from Alabama and Texas--began a
century-long adventure to establish a new homeland and to preserve
important elements of their Old South heritage.
For more than a hundred years, descendants of the original
settlers have largely maintained their language and customs while
contributing to Brazil's economy and society. Here, scholars from
many fields examine every aspect of this unique mingling of
cultures within the larger historical and cultural context.
