Watching Gone With the Wind. Who were the most powerful families of the Confederacy?
Just interested in the names. For example, everyone can agree the Rockafellers, the Vanderbilt's, the DuPonts, and the Kennedy's are all powerful families in history.
Had the Confederates won, perhaps it would have been different.
So did the Confederacy have the same classes? I would have thought these powerful families died with thier "dream" by the end of the war.
This could prove to be interesting research.
