The South After the Civil War

The Civil War took a terrible toll on the southern people. With the help of enslaved Africans, the south built homes and a large agricultural industry that ended with the Civil War and in the deaths of thousands of Confederate and Union soldiers. The war lasted from 1860-1865, but the pace of reconstruction was slow. Today you’ll find that people of black and white ethnicity peacefully populate the south. This mix of ethnicities provides for cultural diversity in food, music, literature and festivities. The south has maintained much of its original French culture and Texas, Louisiana and Florida still maintain strong Latin cultures. Suellen Ocean is the author of the Civil War Era Historic Romance, Black Pansy.
