Disillusioned by the fall of the South, a handful of Confederates abandoned their country for a new life abroad. Many of these disaffected Southerners settled in Mexico, while others ventured as far as Venezuela, Britain, and even Egypt. Yet peace and profit proved elusive for those who sought salvation in Mexico. There, this group of generals, judges, merchants, and farmers encountered political turmoil, debilitating disease, and roving bandits.
