Oglesby argued forcefully that the significance of these events could not be grasped by considering them in isolation. Instead, he contended that they were manifestations of a far more fundamental tension that, in one form or another, has divided the political-economic elite governing America since the earliest days of our Republic, a tension that, in recent years, has contributed to growing political instability at the national level. As a result, they did not receive wide attention among the general public, but they did capture the imagination of many radicals and libertarians who preceived the analytical insights of the model. The Cowboy members of the political-economic elite share a common cultural heritage that is largely derived from the frontier heritage of the West and that sharply distinguishes them from their Yankee associates. Unlike the Yankees, the Cowboys perceive the Pacific Basin as the focus for their essential interests and tend to be far more doctrinairely anti-Communist. The publication of these two books in such close succession ensures that the Yankee-Cowboy model will receive widespread public attention and should provoke a reexamination of many of the most prominent events of the past 15 years from this new perspective.

Focusing on a selected filmography of ten Westerns, this paper explores the reasons why Civil War films, though traditionally set in the East, eventually moved to a western setting, particularly between the early s and the late s. It also aims to show how and to what extent the Western genre proved to be a convenient means to sustain the tale of national reconciliation in the American Civil War. These films reveal that the genre simply drew on preexisting codes and past trends to represent both the war and Southerners, but also used what the West had to offer, notably stock enemies and a neutral territory, to bring about the national reunification. One specific plot that was used many times presents the romance, of course unlikely at the beginning of the movie, which develops between a couple of characters who belong to the two enemy camps, in particular the Southern Belle spy and the Yankee soldier, or the Union nurse and the Confederate officer.
