Edwin Warren Moise came from a prominent South Carolina Jewish family. During the Civil War, he raised a Confederate regiment and later allied himself with Wade Hampton and the Redemptionists. This is his lament to the Lost Cause. “The time must come, and that ere long, when the land that produced the heroism and self-abnegation of 1861 will reap its reward…There is no record of a struggle wherein manly virtue and womanly fortitude earned a more lasting fame than in the rise, struggle, and fall of the Confederate States of America.”
