After the American Civil War, the “Lost Cause” myth was created to reframe the war by justifying the South’s loss and promoting states’ rights as the cause of the war instead of slavery. It became an accepted truth for some as Lost Cause supporters spread its ideas through education, media, politics, money, religion, and violence. This postcard shows how media can help support and spread ideas like the Lost Cause myth. This postcard was based on a photograph taken by Huestis Pratt Cook of young boys and girls dressed in red, white and blue recreating the Confederage flag in front of the Robert E. Lee monument on Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia, as part of a reunion of the United Confederate Veterans and the unveiling of the J.E.B. Stuart monument.
