Found on monuments throughout the South, the sentiment "Lest we forget!" represents the theme of Remembering Georgia's Confederates. Dedicated to the men and women who served Georgia when her heart belonged to the Confederate States of America, this volume remembers the state's Confederate past—a time of passion, devotion, honor, courage, faith, perseverance, sacrifice, and loss. Georgia, rich in its heritage, boasts numerous locales to visit, learn about, and remember its role in the Confederacy: the battlefields and their interpretive centers, the coastal forts, the prison camp, the world's largest painting, the world's largest Confederate memorial, a pair of locomotiveengines, a number of Confederate cemeteries, and various homes, museums, and history centers.

Dr. David N. Wiggins, author of the celebrated Carroll and Haralson Counties in Vintage Postcards, has compiled this pictorial tribute to his home state's Confederate legacy. The volume features vintage images of many of Georgia's soldiers—famous and lesser-known, young and old, survivors and those who never returned. Other views depict survivors in their later years, at postwar gatherings, memorial services, parades, and dedications that reunited them.
