Dear Berks.,
Superb post! I think the Confederates seem more interesting ( other than for political, underdog, or racial agendas), because they seem more unsophisticated, rustic/pioneer and non-industrial age. The south being primarily unindustrialized seems older, more akin to the original thirteen colonies and the romanticized past. This is of course not entirely true but it is more or less accepted. Thus homespun becomes more attractive than mass produced. Federals seem one mass of two tone blue; Confederates all seem individual. Stuart was criticized for his uniform slendor by many fellow Confederates yet Custer equals or exceeds him in this .
Thanks for posting this.
David Corbett
