Interesting, but I wonder if they are racists.

My late husband wrote the first book in English about the Confederate emmigrants to Brazil. He had been born in Brazii, descended from Confederados on both sides. He returned to the US as a boy, served in the US Navy in World War ll, became a US Diplomat and was the escort of Jimmy Carter and his wife when they visited the American Cemetery there. The book he wrote was "The Lost Colony of the Confederacy", has been in print since 1985 and is presently published by Texas A. and M. Press. He always pointed out that ironically, when the Confederates landed in Brazil they found a population of mixed races and after one generation they also married into the Brazilian population, so no, they don't understand racism.

I neglected to mention my late husband's name when I wrote about his book, "The Lost Colony of the Confederacy" by Eugene C. Harter, the first book written in English on the subject of the Confederados in Brazil.
