Neo-Confederate is a term used by some to describe the views of various groups and individuals who view the Southern secession, the Confederate States of America, and the Southern United States in a heroic light.

Honor of the Confederacy and its veterans — Much of the Neo-Confederate movement is concerned with giving the proper due honor to the Confederacy itself, to the veterans of the Confederacy and Confederate veterans' cemeteries, to the various flags of the Confederacy, and to Southern cultural identity.

Neo-Confederates are openly critical of the presidency of Abraham Lincoln to varied degrees, and of the history of Reconstruction. Various authors have written critiques of Lincoln. Many neo-Confederates promote an unabashed Christian culture. They support, for example, public displays of Christianity, such as School Prayer and displays of the Christian cross. We strongly support the right to keep and bear arms, present in both the United States Constitution and the Confederate States Constitution. Generally we oppose unmitigated illegal immigration of foreign nationals into Southern States.

Secession — many neo-Confederates openly advocate the resecession of the Southern states and territories which comprised the old Confederate States.

Most neo-Confederate groups do not seek violent revolution, but rather an orderly separation, such as was done in the division of Czechoslovakia.
