In this age of political correctness 1984 it may surprise people that there were three TV series that portrayed Confederates in a good light. All three are very good and all the episodes of two of the series are available on DVD, and some of the episodes of the other series is available.
The first series is Yancy Derringer. Yancy Derringer is a gentleman, adventurer and gambler. He is a former Confederate Army captain who has returned to New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1868, three years after the end of the War, during Reconstruction. The state is under Union control and martial law.
Widely respected by all parts of New Orleans society as a Southerner who never surrendered, Derringer is recruited by the Federal City Administrator, John Colton, to work as a secret agent at no pay and only Colton knows of his special role.
