Your choice of that quote from Grant intrigues me Pender... as I understand it, one of the tenants of the Lost Cause is that it was inevitable that the Confederacy would eventually succumb to overwhelming numbers of Federal men and equipment. Pretty much all of the early Lost Cause writers advocated this point of view. So, I’d like to pose that question to you, Pender: do you think that the Confederacy could have won its independence? I’m just curious how the more modern lost cause movement compares to the earlier one.
