The past is never dead. On the anniversaries of Lee’s surrender at Appomattox, the release of The Birth of a Nation, and Ken Burns’s The Civil War, Southern Cultures examines historical tensions that still resonate. This issue also finds a disappearing tobacco culture in photos and poetry, what’s really behind the nickname “Tar Heel,” and antebellum southern travelers on their visits north.
