<<  What is your definition of a "true Confederate" , "Neo-Lost Causer" , "
> Neo-Confederate" ?  >>

True Confederate:  One who lived during the time of the Confedeacy, and either served in the Confederate armed forces or otherwise considered him or herself to be a loyal citizen of the CSA.

Neo-Lost Causer:  A "true" Lost Causer being loosely defined as a former "True Confederate", a Neo-Lost Causer would be equally loosely defined as someone born long after the Confederacy ceased to exist.  

Neo-Confederate:  One who gives the impression of living under an unusually protracted Union occupation.
