Hordes of unreconstructed Confederate refugees fled to Central and South America in the aftermath of Appomattox, establishing communities and sugar plantations in their newfound homes. The conflict of cultures between wealthy planters from Louisiana and Mississippi, and officials of the British colonial government in Belize, dampened the dreams of ex-Confederates to rebuild their nation on new soil. Appendices provide detailed lists of immigrants.
