I ran into criticisms of Jub that he was called "lost cause " by a biased "Northern writer" and is a word used all the time by a poster here.

The term “Lost Cause” was coined by Edward Pollard in the title of his 1866 book “The Lost Cause: A New Southern History of the War of the Confederates”. Jubal Early was an ardent defender of the myth. That’s all that was meant by that.
