Notes

Abstract:
Sarah Carrol, one of the last remaining widows of Confederate veterans, lived into the 1970s in Cross City, Florida. Her 1975 interview, conducted by University of Florida graduate student John Hansinger, intends to provide the twenty-first century listener with a lesson in the politics of the “Lost Cause,” pension claims, and the post-war experience for Confederate veterans and their families. Buttressed by documentary sources detailing Sarah Carrol’s fight against impoverishment as she worked to secure her deceased husband’s pension, this alternative narrative about memory ties into the economic reality of post-Civil War Florida. Produced by Jessica Taylor and Deborah Hendrix.
