Gary Galllagher argues that Confederate morale, belief in their military, and shared sense of Southern identity remained remarkably high throughout the Civil War. This combination of factors, and less need for the complete surrender of the enemy than the Union, allowed the Confederacy to fight on longer and come closer to victory than many historians suppose.
