(p.64) Chapter Three Schools of Citizenship
The Loyal Republic

Erik Mathisen

University of North Carolina Press

Conceived in war, the Confederate States of America was a nation-state built around its military. As this chapter argues, military service quickly became fused with ideas about Confederate citizenship, and the military became a site where faith in the national cause melded effortlessly with religion and where white southern men were schooled in how to become soldiers and citizens, all at once.
