notes, wartime literature, and the function of the army in symbolizing the Confederate
Nationalisms are likely to build glorified pasts, idyllic images of
nationwide energy, honor, and team spirit, in keeping with visions of what must have been instead of what

Southerners making use of intertwined mythic concepts—the "Worthy Southron," the "Demon Yankee," the
"Silent Slave"—and a feeling of shared background that constituted a particular Confederate
Americanism. The beneficial Southron, the built accomplice self, used to be imagined as a champion
of liberty, counterposed to the Demon Yankee different, a fanatical abolitionist and enemy of
Liberty. The Silent Slave was once a spouse to the vocal accomplice self, unswerving and trusting,
trustworthy and honest.
