Southern Historical Society
The Southern Historical Society was a public organization founded by Confederate Major General Dabney H. Maury in 1868-1869. It documented Southern military and civilian viewpoints from the American Civil War until now. They published the Southern Historical Society Papers in the late 19th Century, comprising 52 volumes of articles written by Southern soldiers, officers, politicians, and civilians. Jubal Early was one of the contributors.
The aim was to offer a Southern perspective on the Civil War and oppose the bias of Northern historians.
