  Topic Description
Posted by: Amaral When the South lost some veterans migrated to Brazil and founded settlements in the interior of São Paulo. The "Festa dos Confederados" at Cemitério do Campo takes place in Santa Bárbara d'Oeste, SP, every year. In this cemitery there is 18 soldiers and five generals of the Confederacy resting in it. Known as "the American cemitery", it was created to bury the Protestant immigrants as they couldn't be buried in Catholic cemiteries. The text is in Portuguese but the pictures speak for themselves. http://g1.globo.com/sp/piracicaba-regiao/noticia/2014/04/guerra-civil-dos-eua-e-celebrada-em-cemiterio-de-imigrantes-em-sao-paulo.html

It's a possibility, as we were the last (together with the Cubans) to end slavery. Some Confederates helped the Imperial Army in the war against Paraguay.
