Sweetly Southern: Delicious Desserts from the Sons of Confederate Veterans
is a mouth-watering collection of 173 desserts, candies, punches, and sweet-tasting snacks submitted by members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Members pay homage to their ancestors by submitting favorite family treats, including such militarily inspired desserts as Dying General Buttermilk Pie, Jeff Davis Pudding Pie, and Robert E. Lee Orange Pie. From historic confections like Lady Baltimore Cake to contemporary favorites such as Peanut Butter Pie, these treasured recipes reflect the sweet tooths of modern Confederate families across the United States. Vintage photographs and capsule biographies of soldiers from the War Between the States round out this nostalgic, yet useful, cookbook. These tried-and-true dishes, tested by home cooks, are sure to impart a sweetly Southern flavor to your family gatherings.
R. G. Wilson, commander in chief of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, contributed the foreword. As the oldest patriotic and hereditary organization for male descendants of Confederate soldiers and sailors, the Sons of Confederate Veterans continues to preserve and defend the history and principles of the Old South. Through more than seven hundred camps and 35,000 members coast to coast, the memory and sacrifice of the men who defended the Confederacy, as well as the heritage, history, and records of the Confederate States of America, endure.
