In this Epilogue, disparate visions of young women in the antebellum South—conservative vs. progressive, reactionary vs. rebellious—are examined, along with the emergence of a conflicted image of southern women in place of the unified motif of the southern lady. Focusing on the United Daughters of the Confederacy, formed a generation after the end of the Civil War to preserve and praise a particular image of the Old South, the chapter considers the role of southern white women in maintaining white supremacy, bolstering male superiority, and preserving class privilege in the post-Civil War South. More specifically, it discusses the notion that southern women helped to rebuild the New South in the image of the Old.
