Known as Confederados to their Brazilian neighbors, 20,000 Southerners fled to that South American country after the Civil War. "Their plan was to isolate themselves and set up communities that treasured southern ways---a confederacy of the mind," Eugene C. Harter explains. But the Confederados' descendants gradually incorporated aspects of Brazilian culture into their own, creating a unique identity that persists to this day.
