Biographical history

Historian Lloyd Everett practiced law and researched, wrote and lectured on Confederate history. Everett studied law at George Washington University with the goal of writing southern history from a legal standpoint. He graduated in 1903, became a member of the Bars of Washington D.C., Maryland, Florida and North Carolina and was admitted to practice before the Supreme Court.

Everett wrote several articles on Confederate history published in the South Atlantic Quarterly, Southern Historical Association Papers and Tyler's Quarterly Historical and Genealogical Magazine. He also published a historical novel and co-edited the re-publication of R.G. Horton's A Youth's History of the Civil War, first published in 1866. Everett's other published works include several essays published in pamphlet form, as well as selected drafts of the unfinished work "Dixie's Story." Several chapters of the book, intended to cover the history of the southern states from the founding of Jamestown to the present, appear in 1950s issues of Tyler's Quarterly Historical and Genealogical Magazine. Everett also contributed to the field of southern history by giving lectures before historical associations in Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and Florida.
