Sympathizer during the American Civil War. And wrote several books on the causes and events of the conflict.Pollard is most famous for authoring The Lost Cause in 1866, followed up by The Lost Cause Regained in 1868. These two works, both written after the war, gave two different descriptions of the causes of the war and the nature of southern society.
The earlier work saw the war as being between two opposing ways of organizing society and saw slavery as a key part of the nobility of the South and a key basis of the difference between the societies. The latter work argued that the primary reason for Secession was not slavery but the preservation of state sovereignty, although he clearly supported the institution of slavery. The Lost Cause and The Lost Cause Regained both advocated for the supremacy of the white race, supported the relegation of blacks to a second class status, and accused the U. Government of alleged excesses committed during and after the war. However, The Lost Cause Regained reflected much of Pollards post-1867 writing in attempting to reconcile former pro-Confederacy ideas with new realities and supported patriotism and free-labor Unionism.
