During the American Civil War and the years immediately following, thousands of Confederate sympathizers and former soldiers left the southern United States to seek exile in other lands. Evidence suggests that more Confederate soldiers went to British Honduras, presently known as Belize, than any other single site. This work is an in-depth look at the settlements established by former Confederates—what lured the Confederates there, what the trip from New Orleans was like, what life was like for immigrants in Belize City, the settlements at Toledo, New Richmond, northern British Honduras, Manattee and other settlements, and what Belize City was like at the height of the immigrant influx. Also included are lists of arrivals at the hotels and passenger lists from the ships; both were important in identifying prominent Confederates who sought refuge in British Honduras.

This is a general study of Belize, its people and history including its transformation from colonial status as a British colony - known as British Honduras - to independent nationhood when the country assumed its current name. Subjects covered include the country's cultural and ethnic diversity, as well as its political landscape, constituting a vibrant heterogeneous society that is also unique in the Central American region as the only country that was once ruled by Britain. As a general study, the work is intended for members of the general public. But some members of the academic community may also find it to be useful.
